college search help?

<p>Hi! first time poster.</p>

<p>I'm unsure of what/where I want to go to college, thought here might be a good start for a search!</p>

<p>here are my stats!:</p>

<p>GPA (cumulative on a 4.5 scale):
unweighted: 3.61
weighted: 3.971</p>

<p>Classes taken (honors/AP)
Honors English I
Honors Civics/Worldstudies
Honors French 4
Honors French 5
AP computer Science
Honors Advanced Math
Honors Physics</p>

<p>Next Year's schedule:
AP english lit
AP calculus AB
AP macroeconomics
AP Biology
Honors US History</p>

<p>rest are level 4 classes (honors and AP are level 5)</p>

<p>SATs: 1910
CR: 640
Math: 630
Writing: 640</p>

<p>I've been on the Track team (both indoor and outdoor) for 3 years, have been in various clubs and other activities!</p>

<p>I'm unsure of what I specifically want to do, but definately something in the sciences (biochem/biophysics, pre-med etc.) I would muchly appreciate an unexpensive school, or an expensive school with good financial aid/scholarships. </p>

<p>I am asian and a female. My top choices right now are UConn, RPI, University of Maryland (college park) and Georgetown (But that one's a long shot!) </p>

<p>LMK! Thanks!</p>

<p>Check out PennState, U. of Delaware, and Rutgers. I don't know about their merit or need-based aid. It would be great if anyone can shed some light on it.</p>

<p>What is your home state? You should consider at least one in-state public for a chance at good financial aid. OOS publics will, in most cases, not give any to OOS students. Merit aid is a little different in that some major public Us will give aid to OOS students but your stats may be a little low for those. Have you discussed with your parents what they might be able to afford? There are some (relatively) lower cost OOS schools available but they are still not inexpensive.</p>

<p>I have been surprised to learn, though, that the out-of-state tuition price varies from as high as $30,000 to down to $15,000. University of Minnesota, for example, is $15,000. So check out which are the cheaper options for out of state students.</p>
