What colleges would you recommend to me?
I’m a junior in high school, and have a 3.77 unweighted cumulative gpa and a 4.32 weighted so far. I haven’t taken the SAT but I think i could get a 1380-1400 and based on my practice tests and if I study a lot, that should be doable. I really want to major in something with social studies- right now either psychology or history. I want to go to the west coast or the northeast, just not the south or midwest. ECs- piano for 10 years, marching band, and I am starting hospital volunteering next week and by may 2020 I will have close to 150 hours from that. Based on this info what college could I possibly get into that fits my achievements and interest? I know I’m only going to be a junior but this is just so I can start researching some potential schools. Thanks for reading8 replies
