Hey guys, so right now I have like an 89.87% cumulative avg on my transcript, and it would be great if I can get some list of a few colleges/universities I can start looking into(ex. ivy leagues, state or city colleges in NY, etc). I haven't taken the SAT yet.

    What major? What budget? Have you taken a PSAT?

    For the Ivies and any other schools that accept 25% or fewer of their applicants, the intangibles weigh as much as the academics. There are so many academically qualified files they pick and choose looking for diversity, talents of various types (arts, athletics, published author, etc) and future leaders in their fields (meriting national or international attention in high school), among other factors. Do you have an impressive resume?
