I need more safety and match schools
I am currently researching colleges and trying to compile a list of schools to apply to. I will eventually cut my research list down, but I currently feel as though I have too many matches and not enough match and safety schools. I am looking to go into Comp Sci and Data Science. I also want to stay within a 7-7.5 hour driving distance from Columbus, Ohio. I have a 3.95 UW GPA and a 4.35 W GPA. I also have a 35 ACT score. Currently, my list of colleges are: Cornell, Johns Hopkins, UW Madison, UMich, UIUC, Penn State, Lehigh, OSU, Perdue and Virginia Tech. If anybody could suggest more schools for me, specifically match and safety schools, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks )19 replies
