<p>My college list right now is heavy at the top and bottom but thin in the middle- please help me.</p>
<p>I'm white, female, upper middle-class, and live in Maryland.
Top 5% of a 620-person class, public high school in a competitive magnet program.
GPA is 3.9 UW/4.14 W. SAT is 2290 (800 R, 700 M, 790 W).
SAT IIs are 800 (Bio E, World History) and 780 (Math IIC).
For APs, I got 5s on US Gov, Bio, and Calc AB, with 4s on World and Lang.
Editor in chief of the school satirical newspaper (9th-12th), two years' participation in Model UN and Japanese National Honor Society (including running the most active cultural club in the school) when counting senior year.
National Merit Finalist. Am currently doing the magnet program's senior capstone project- research project collecting data from a national park. Suffered from depression in 9th and part of 10th, so strong upward trend in GPA after that. Great writer, will have 2 great teacher recs and, unfortunately, one from my guidance counselor, who barely knows me.</p>
<p>I'm looking for colleges in CA, the Pacific Northwest, the Northeast, and I suppose the mid-Atlantic. I just really don't want to go to most of the South or in Texas.</p>
<p>Want to major in English. Would like to double-major in History or Computer Science. Prefer a college with an even focus on humanities and sciences, but okay with a slight slant either way. Any size between 4,000 and 25,000, give or take a thousand. MUST be LGBT-friendly (emphasis on the L...). Distance from home (suburb of DC) is an EPIC BONUS. In/near urban area preferred, with a wide range of languages. Assume price isn't an issue- what are some matches?</p>
