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.

SMU(I love Dallas)
Texas A & M
Barrett honors college at ASU
Tulane( However afraid of big party scene)

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

Stats :
1340 didn't study going to retake in August hoping for 1370 or above
690 math
650 English

ACT: 28 Superscore (this thing is so freaking fast)
27 best single test

31 math
28 reading
28 English
26 science

3.67 UW
and 3.8W

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.

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:

ECs: I think this is my strong suit.

varsity soccer freshman year until injury
tennis on the side for all 4 years of high school

jewish religious youth group education chapter education leader
lead congregation wide services regularly
was named Synagogue men's club youth of the year

Business Club DECA CFO

Business club awards:
3rd place all district buying and merchandising
3rd place all state Entrepreneurship

all in my first year in the club that I joined when I moved to Arizona

Volatility hedge fund Internship

other tidbits:
Proficient in the programming languages of java and python
Nearly Fluent in Hebrew after 5 years of class and speaking with mom at home

Budget isn't important
and IF possible
prefer conservative-leaning colleges
and an at least somewhat active Hillel (Jewish community ) on campus
