    Bing, Geno, and stony Brook will all accept you easily. The others should pay you to go there. you should look at rutgers honestly, its much better than the sunys besides bing and geno. You should look at Rochester and Syracuse, they look like better matches for you.

    If you are looking for a smaller, LAC, than Geneseo is the college for you.

    The only ones you should consider with your stats are Geneseo, Binghamton & Stony Brook. They'll probably all accept you. Then, I'd say go visit them all and make your choice!
