    Beyond the specific schools that others have mentioned, I think that since you're so undecided as to major,
    it means that you would want to be extra sure that any school you're interested in has solid advising.

    Many will have First Year programs that assist those who are undecided, or have career counseling along with their strong advising. Typically a school (public or private) with an Honors program will provide enriched guidance beyond general education (or core) courses.

    Because cost is at issue, please listen to the many school suggestions and general FinAid advice given by some of the previous posters. Since your stats are very impressive, continue to seek schools where you would qualify for full tuition, or those schools where the combination of need-based and merit scholarships will allow you to attend.
    MHC is a great private option, as well as the in-state NY schools.

    NY is a pretty big state. The requirement for Excelsior is that you stay in state, not that you stay at home. In your shces, I would absolutely consider, very strongly, staying in state and using the Excelsior scholarship to allow you to follow your dream.
