Hi, I am a rising Senior in Arizona that transferred from a competitive charter school in California before junior year and now attend a competitive public school. I want to major in either finance, business admin, or econ, and minor in computer science. Schools I have liked in my search so far have been.

Tulane( However afraid of big party scene)


It would be great if I got some honest suggestions and guidance. Thank you guys in advance!

27 best single test

best
subscores
31 math
28 reading
28 English
26 science

A note: at my California high school honors classes weren't offered and instead, every class was treated as honors but did not GPA boost besides APs.

APs:
9th: AP human geography 5
10th AP European History 4
11th APUSH most likely a 5
AP Chem (did not take the test due to an unprepared teacher)
12th will take:
