Can you recommend some schools to me?

<p>GPA: 3.6, but should be a 3.7 or above by the end of this school year.
SAT Superscore: 1850
Extracurriculars: Tennis, American Sign Language Club, French Honor Society, Rotary Interact Club, DECA.</p>

<p>I'm looking to major in business, most likely business management and maybe minor in something such as marketing or finance. I'm looking for a school that's great with job placement and gets a lot of recruiters hiring, specifically with the business majors!</p>

<p>I'm looking to stay towards the East Coast and not go farther out west from Jersey than PA.</p>

<p>I really need some help finding some schools!</p>

<p>Here are some that come to mind right away:
Pace, Hofstra, James Madison University, Bentley College, Bryant University, SUNYs, Montclair State, TCNJ (reach) and Ramapo College if your from NJ, Susquehanna U., Marist, Ithaca College, Roger Williams, Northeastern (reasonable reach), Champlain College, UVM, Towson U., Salisbury State, Univ. of Mary Washington, Queens U of Charlotte, some UNCs (ie: Asheville, Wilmington-reach, and other campuses), Eckerd College, Rollins, U of Tampa, Elon (reach), Roanoke College, College of Charleston, Manhattan College</p>

<p>You will have to investigate recruiting by contacting career centers. It is my belief that your best chance for meeting recruiters who recruit on campus are at schools with LOTs of students, and/or in cities (IMO, most recruiters are not particularly interested in traveling to rural areas to recruit on a tiny campus which can only offer them a few students that are going to be able to submit resumes).</p>

<p>TCNJ (reach), Rutgers (match), Rowan (safety) as instate publics.</p>

<p>Private and out-of-state schools to consider, depending on finances:
Northeastern is known for its coop program and job placement
American U
U Richmond
NYU (reach)
Bryant (has a business focus)
SUNY Binghamton (low OOS tuition at the SUNYs)
Syracuse
Fordham
Drexel
Pitt
U. Delaware</p>

<p>Check out Business Week's undergrad rankings and then compare with 25/75th percentile SAT scores to see what schools would be reasonable safety/match/reach schools, and apply to schools with a range of selectivity levels.</p>

<p>What can your family afford?</p>

<p>Thank you for all of the great recommendations! Pitt and Drexel are big front runners for me.</p>

<p>Erin's Dad- Price isn't an issue. I'm just trying to come up with some schools. </p>

<p>Also, I was interested in Penn State for a while, but I'm not so sure anymore.what do you guys think?</p>

<p>OP, price isn't an issue as in your family is OK with spending $50K/year for school, or price isn't an issue meaning you don't want to consider it?</p>

<p>Hey TaylorBaton,</p>

<p>I'm going to be a shameless supporter and recommend that you check out Appalachian State. It's not any ivy league school like some other posters were recommending, but it's quickly becoming prestigious for a state school. Your GPA and SAT score are about average for incoming freshmen. </p>

<p>We are known for our programs in education, business, football, and music. (Just kidding about football...sort of. haha.) The Walker College of Business is strong in international study, and has programs in Management, International Business, Marketing, Economics, Hospitality, and more. It was ranked in the Best Business Schools by Princeton Review.</p>

<p>And price-wise, it's one of the least expensive schools around. </p>

<p>Some websites you can check out are Appalachian</a> State University :: Boone, North Carolina and Walker</a> College of Business. </p>

<p>And if you have any more questions, I'll be glad to help too.</p>

<p>"And my Dad is willing to give about $10,000-$12,000 a year! Very low, I know, but I plan on applying for scholarships like a madwoman."</p>

<p>I think price is going to be an issue for you.
You can apply for outside scholarships but they are only good for one year.
Some schools will take an outside scholarship & reduce the amount of your grant money by that exact amount, so it benefits the college, not the student! </p>

<p>You have to be realistic about what you can afford.</p>

<p>OP, please listen to SLUMOM's advice in the post above!</p>
