Hi. I'm currently a senior this year. I have a 4.03 unweighted gpa. I rank 7 out of 345. I Took two ap classes last year (us history and lit and comp) taking W131, AP CALC, and AP Psychology this year. I'm in Nat. Honors Society, Student Leadership Academy, Spanish Honors Society, and Student Council. I took the SATS in october and got this math: 600 reading: 610 writing: 590Anyway, I'm looking at colleges right now, and having a really difficult time. I really don't want to stay in Indiana. But my parents own their own auto business and we only bring in about $29,000 after taxes combined. So money is a major issue. I have a list of colleges I'd like to see made, but visiting all of them definately isn't an option, maybe 2 or 3. I want to be a psychian's assistant or major in pre-med- possibly psychology too. I really want to be a GP, but b/c of time and all the malpractice stuff I think I'm going to go for a PA.
I'm really interesting in the UC schools, I love cali. But between them, whic would be the best to apply for. Any schools in cali actually. I'm set on Ball State if I stay here in indiana.
Anyway, what are all your suggestions?
So far I have:
Ohio State Univ
Miami of Ohio
Duke (a reach)
UNC- chapel hill
Ball State or IU (just safties)
UC- san francisco great psy dep.
UC- santa cruz
maybe more ucs?
I'm open to more possibilities, mostly I want a pretty broad range of majors and in a college town or urban area.
Also, if one college offers me, say 1/2 tutition, can i go to another college and "haggle" that? For instance, tell them that i have this other offer and see if they'll match it?
