I'm about to be a senior next year and I'm planning to enroll at a college or university as a pre-med.
GPA: 3.9/4.0 (school says 4.474/4.5)
SAT: 2030 (630 CR, 680 Math, 720 Writing) (i took it early during the junior year and i'm going to take this again since I took it the first time on impulse and did not really have time to study a lot)
I will be taking SAT subjects tests soon (Math II and Biology)
I have taken all honor classes and AP US History, AP Biology, AP English Language and Composition. I have gotten a 5 on the AP US History and AP Bio Exam.
I will be taking AP Lit, AP Physics, AP Cal, and AP Spanish next year. I hope to take the AP Exams for AP Physics and AP Cal.</p>
<p>Extracurricular: Filipino Club, Spanish Honor Society, Math Honor Society (Mu Theta Alpha), volunteering in a hospital, outside of school I played basketball in a league for freshman and sophomore years</p>
<p>Preferences for college:
Location: I live in NJ and would like the college to be close, like 100 - 200 miles max. I could go out of state like in PA or NY.</p>
<p>Academics: I want a college/university to be quite rigorous in its classes. I don't want a college where I could just lay back. Maybe, it could have a good honors program.</p>
<p>Class Size: I prefer classes in the 20's and teens, not 40+. But I would make exceptions.</p>
<p>Atmosphere: I don't want to be in the middle of nowhere. I want a suburban or urban environment where you could go outside of the campus and do stuff. I want a college/university where there are a lot of activities to do (volunteering, clubs, organizations)</p>
<p>Here's my college list for now:</p>
The College of New Jersey
Rutgers University New Brunswick
Stony Brook University</p>
<p>Please add to my list or modify it. I would like your suggestions/recommendations.
If you add a college/university, please categorize it as a safety or reach accordingly.</p>
