I am undecided in my major thus far, but it will probably include some type of Business/Finance concentration...


I would need large amount of financial aid but have siblings at other universities so I should get something, right?

    1320/1600 SAT confirmed by a 29 ACT is too low for Dartmouth College without a significant hook such as being a Native American or a published award winner. You are a strong match for Colgate University if you intend to study finance. The Univ. of Richmond is also worth your consideration. Assuming a score of 5 on the upcoming Statistics AP may give you a surprise as I know several "A" students who scored "3" and "2" on AP Statistics.
