Competive school for average student.

<p>For some reason I perform better when in an academically challenging environment. Such as I perform better in honors classes then non-honors. Perhaps it's cause I grew up playing sports all my life, and I learned competiveness from that. So what is a good school for economics you think I could get into with people who work hard for their grades? </p>

<p>I'm currently a junior. 3.2w, 3.4uw. 24act (First time), Varsity ice hockey, assistant captain, and played since I was 5years old. Varsity cross country and track, in cross country placed 13th at conference. FBLA reporter, went to nationals for economics competion, and Nationals for Knowledge matters business competion. Also own my own online custom computer company which has made around $9000 in revenue, and $3500 in profits. Done 200 community service hours. Currently organizing a 5k run/walk, to raise money for local food pantry. Also took some community college classes over this summer and last. My current GPA over there is a 3.5</p>

<p>First, are you interested in continuing to play hockey in college? The following schools all have either strong economics or strong business or both PLUS ice hockey teams. Your ice hockey experience might give you an edge in terms of admissions depending on how good you are.</p>

<p>Boston U
Trinity College
Bowdoin College
University of Denver
Colorado College
Northeastern U
St. Olaf College
Kalamazoo College
St. Lawrence U
Union College</p>

<p>I'd also suggest you take a look at Babson and Bentley - two very good business schools to see if they're of interest.</p>

<p>I agree with Carolyn. Her list is a great starting point. </p>

<p>I'd also look at:</p>

<p>McGill
UToronto
Bates
Connecticut C
Bucknell
Lafayette
Lehigh</p>

<p>Just my additional 2 cents. Good luck. I hope this is of use. :)</p>

<p>Bentley is D1 hockey i think</p>
