    People on this site can only guess what colleges you might be able to afford. You will have to find ones that you can actually afford yourself.

    You need to go to all of the online net price calculators for the schools mentioned (and others that you are interested in) in this thread. You will provide data on your GPA and ACT. You will need to get other information from your parents...income, tax data, etc. Once you enter all of this data into the net price calculator you will see what kind of merit and need based aid that you will receive. It might look like this...

    Total Cost of Attendance = $35,000
    Need Based Grants = $10,000
    Merit Based Scholarships = $10,000
    Student Self Help (Loans/Work) = $5,000
    Family Contribution = $10,000
    Unmet Need=$0
