She wants to stay in GA, TN, NC, SC, basically mid-Southern States. Last resort she’ll go up to the midwest but prefers to stay close to GA. Hates TX and FL.
If her Essays and LORs are good, what are the chances of getting into these schools? Are there any other schools we should be looking at? Any safeties or target schools you can suggest? Should we add in more reaches?
Could you rank the following as target, reach, safety for her?
GA Tech - in state
Vanderbilt - RD
Emory - RD
Clemson (doesn’t seem to give much aid)
U. of Alabama
She has a good work ethic, wants to go to a school where she feels challenged, she’s outgoing and independent and prefers cities to very rural. I thought she could improve her test scores but she refuses to, prefers to spend time on her extracurriculars.
