<p>Thanks ahead of time for heping out, I haven't fully determined a career path, anyting between politics, military, engineering or busines... most likely one of those four... so any help would be great, be honest please when suggesting colleges!Thanks :)</p>

<p>Your reach schools would be schools such as Boston College, GWU, Bucknell, Lehigh, Colgate, USC, etc. etc. You should also consider some financial match and safety schools that are in your state of residency.</p>

<p>I disagree with jshain. I think most of those schools would be matches, as the scores of the OP are around the average for all of these schools, and his ECs are great. Reaches would be schools such as dartmouth, brown, cornell, WUSTL. If you can get your ACT scores up, you have a good chance at these as well.</p>

<p>I feel that the schools that dnuos13 said are reaches would be EXTREMELY high reaches for an unhooked applicant that currently has scored a 30 on the ACT, along with okay but rather non-distinctive EC's. It is for this reason that I suggested to you to apply to some REALISTIC reach schools that you have a better chance at getting admitted to. I still encourage you to apply to some more selective schools such as the ones you listed, but give yourself a better chance of being admitted to schools that more closely match your stats and resume than Ivy/Ivy-equivalent schools.</p>

<p>Any particular location, college/university type, campus specifics, monetary concerns (need good FA/scholarships)?</p>

<p>Might look at Holy Cross, Davidson, William&Mary, and Bowdoin all have strong academics and good athletic programs.</p>

<p>Good reaches might be WUSTL, Notre Dame, UC-Berkley (or some other UC's), NYU (especially if you choose business), Cornell, UChicago etc. might be high reachs.</p>
