I'm 16 and a first-year student at QCC. I'll probably spend the 2012 - 2013 school year there (in lieu of completing high school... it's a long story), then transfer out. I've done a lot of research on good-to-great LAC's, and I have plenty of reaches and matches, but I'm a little short on safety schools. If some sane, knowledgeable, and unpretentious people could help me out, that would be amazing. I'll post "stats" upon request.
In the meantime, here's my list. I think, for these purposes, it provides a pretty good overview of my personality, interests, and political views.
Eugene Lang (New School)
College of the Atlantic
I need to re-emphasize that I want "safeties" that, although not "comparable" to my reaches and matches in "status/rank" (quotation marks absolutely necessary..), have a similar campus vibe and quality of academics. Please don't tell me to go to UMass Amherst or MCLA.
