Community College stundent seeks good school

<p>So I go to a community college in the northwest suburbs of Chicago called Harper College. I got into Loyola, Depaul and UIC but dedcided to go this route instead.</p>

<p>Here is my story.</p>

<p>I got like a 2.75 in high school with a 26 ACT. In high school I took one AP class and started taking classes at the community college starting junior year. Senior year i took the 7 credit hour EMT-B class while in high school which I figure a modest accomplishment considering no one else did that. </p>

<p>I am a semester ahead at my community college and I expect to graduate with a 3.0-3.2 GPA. </p>

<p>I have NO extracurricular in the technical sense but I have immense drive. Part of the reason my grades are not the best is because I have always worked many hours a week. I had two jobs for a long time, climbed up to manager at one job. The other job involved working 9 hour night shifts at a hospital of which i was the youngest employee by a lot. </p>

<p>I also have played In rock bands all my life. I have toured, recorded and done all sorts of cool stuff with that.</p>

<p>I am not really sure what I want to do as far as a major so my plans have been to go to the best school I can possibly get into and then also go to some grad school.</p>

<p>So my question is what school should I apply too? Will schools be able to look past my stats and see the other things that I have accomplished?</p>

<p>Depaul, Loyola and UIC are my fallbacks...</p>

<p>Starting up at like Cornell and Brown all the way down what should I go for without feeling like I am just wasting my application money?</p>
