What other colleges should I look at?

edited November 2012 in College Search & Selection
I'm a high school senior at a fairly competitive high school in Massachusetts and I'm looking to pursue a degree in finance. While I have a few ideas, I feel like my list is too short and narrow. I am interested in schools like Northeastern/Bentley, I just need more suggestions. That being said, what are some match/reach colleges that I should consider? I really appreciate any help!

One thing that worries me is what seems like a discrepancy between my GPA and SAT score which I fear will tell colleges I got easy As which I don't believe is the case. I just kind of stink at English unfortunately. So with that I don't know what I can look at as far as reaches.

Unweighted GPA: 3.8
Weighted GPA: 4.3
5 APs - 3 As, 2 Bs
SAT - 1900
Math II - 720
Chemistry - 710
-First honors throughout high school
-Fairly involved in ECs. NHS, treasurer of community service club, have a job year round, and a few other things

Looking for <25,000 students
City or suburb preferably but not a must
Assume I can go without financial aid if I have to

    Thanks! I will definitely look into those.

    I thought I should just add that I'm also looking for a college with good internship connections and job placement rates. I know it often comes with large universities in and around cities but in case that rings any bells in anybody's head, I thought I'd mention it.
