We are Florida residents, and my daughter is trying to narrow down her selections. She plans to stay in the Southeast, but might be open to the right offer further from home. She prefers a school that leans a bit more conservative.
Her list so far:
Washington & Lee
Liberty (she is really drawn to the Christian aspect of this school)
She comes from a long line of Gators, and with UF being highly ranked and in-state...of course, UF is on the list. But she's not 100% sold on it. Her older brother just graduated from there and he was disappointed with the experience he had.
She visited the Honors College as well as Warrington at UF and did like it. But is still looking at other schools to compare.
-Weighted GPA is 4.27
-SAT is 1450 (only took once)
-ACT composite is 34 (35 super-scored)
-National Merit Commended
-Probable Valedictorian (small school of 26 seniors)
-Interested in a degree pertaining to numbers (Accounting, Finance, Economics, Statistics, Analytics, Actuarial, etc)
-Would like to combine with a business degree
-Varsity letters in swimming, basketball, and lacrosse (basketball and lacrosse for managing the team, not playing)
-She is a film/commercial actress and runs her own business doing commercial and industrial voiceovers out of her closet
-She does her coursework at home, so most of her extracurriculars are adult groups/activities. Not the normal high school stuff.
She has Florida Prepaid + top tier Bright Futures, so if accepted to UF, her tuition would automatically be covered. Makes it hard to pass up. However, UF is SUCH a big school... I can't help but wonder if being in a smaller school would give her more opportunities to make a difference and get involved. She'd be more than just a number.
Any advice is appreciated!
