Hello! I'm writing here because I need help expanding my list. (I'm a rising senior btw.)
Currently, I have Boston U, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, NYU, Northeastern, Rutgers, Tufts, and Yale on my list. All these schools are pretty hard to get into to (minus Rutgers, maybe), so I feel like I need to expand my list. I'm mainly interested in schools in the Northeast, and I want to major in History. I'll put some stats below if that helps. Thanks in advance.
GPA: 4.0 UW, 4.87 W
APs: all 4s and 5s
I have pretty decent extracurriculars, though I won't list everything in detail. I'm president of my class, editor of my school's paper, a published writer, research awards, etc. I don't have any hooks, though. Not a recruited athlete, URM, or legacy (except at tufts).
Any advice is welcome.
