NorthEast College Road Trip #2
Last Oct did CRT#1 to Ohio and PA. Loved College of Wooster, Denison and Allegheny. DD2 is thinking of "something psychology / sociology / maybe criminal but not criminal justice". Easy enough. Looking at the possible visit list to be culled down based on running the NPC for some merit and looking for the right fit. Honestly, I wish she would just apply apply apply and then we could make a trip out in February to see the top contenders but she has 1 week off from school in late Oct so am making it a two week trip (sneaking in a well deserved visit with DD1 in college in the south). Here is the basic list - very open to adding similar suggestions that are on our route and very open to nixing any that have a bad rep for low merit. GPA 3.55, normal scores - waiting for the Oct SAT, interesting backstory and life, good EC's, sharp essay with a quirky topic and URM of Hispanic (Guatemalan).
OPEN TO MORE GOOD FITS WITH NICE MERIT ON THIS ROUTE-ISH.
Starting in the North bc we are landing in Boston ($395 RT on Lufthansa from Europe!)
University of New Haven
JUNIATA - our newest top five college
Dickinson - not in love with the NPC results which is odd since I heard they had good merit. Will look at the numbers again....
George Mason U - bigger than M&D would like but close to some friends home so easy to go visit
Lynchburg ( we are in the area, I earned my Masters from Liberty down the way so might stop by or just drive by and wave, has a HS friend at Lynchburg so just checking it out)
MAYBE ... Husson University in Bangor, Maine at the start depending on timing and what I hear from everyone here.
