You need a university that meets need but based on your list only Columbia University does.
To see what I mean, run the NPC (net price calculator) on
University of San Francisco
The New School
and compare the NET PRICE.
(That’s the money you’re supposed to raise/find. Keep in mind you are only allowed a 5.5K loan for freshman year.)
Columbia is “need blind/meet need” and has a generous aid policy. Fordham doesn’t have as much money and doesn’t meet need but they have a few scholarships. USF and New School don’t have the funds to fund students so that, if you’re not wealthy, you’re out of luck. This would become clear when they see how much they expect you to pay.
Syracuse and Fordham might offer you scholarships - are you a NYS resident, would you qualify for EOP/HEOP?
I’m assuming your EFC is 0. Is that correct?
The others WILL NOT be affordable for a very low income student.
St Olaf and Lawrence should definitely be on your list.
Add Concordia-Moorhead, Luther College, which have very good choirs and music programs.
Questbridge deadlines: if you’ve started on your commonapp already, and I hope you have, you should have a lot of things ready already. Teacher recommendations, if you’ve moved several times each year, are going to be hard to come by. Make a “brag sheet” listing all your accomplishments + favorite moments in the subjects that your chosen teachers teach (even if they didn’t teach you, say, English, for 4 years, they’ll like to see what you liked about the subject, moments in class that struck you, etc.)
Are you a boy or a girl? (You’d have a decent shot at some women’s colleges but as a boy interested in music Vassar might be within the range of possibility).
Have you graduated HS already?
Are you 16 and an emancipated minor?
Have you taken at least 3 years in a foreign language? Bio, chem, physics? math through precalculus? What IB classes did you take?
DO NOT take any community college classes as it’d limit your choices even further financially (you’d be considered a transfer and transfers get lousy aid).
