I’d love your help on adding some colleges to my daughter’s list.
She’d love a gorgeous campus (trees, traditional layout, etc.), on the East Coast, perhaps midwest, and ideally a small group (honors colleges, scholars programs, etc.) within a large institution. We are strictly applying to a few Ivies and the rest are schools that give merit. She’s pre-med, possibly a neuroscience major.
She’s a strong student, interesting EC’s, great community service, weighted GPA: 4.55 SAT = 1570, National Merit Semifinalist, no ranking in school but probably in top 3, if not the top.
Diversity is a must, non-sectarian school. Active MSA a huge plus (Muslim Student Association)
Here we go…
Ivies: Harvard, Princeton, Yale
Duke (Robertson Scholars Program)
UNC Chapel Hill (Robertson Scholars Program and Morehead Cain)
UVA (Jefferson Scholars)
William and Mary (1693 Scholars)
Wash U St. Louis (3 different scholars programs)
George Washington (merit aid available)
Emory (Scholars Program)
Univ. of Maryland (Banneker Key Program)
Univ. of Pittsburgh (Chancellor’s Award)
Univ. of Richmond (Scholars Program)
Which others would you suggest? I took off any college (except Ivies) that does not award merit aid. Thank you so much for helping!
