help with choosing schools

<p>Hello,everybody. I am actually a new member in this community~~I have a very urgent problem with choosing the proper colleges to apply...
I am an international student and I do need a lot of financial aid.
I don't care about the ranks at all.What really matters to me is the atmosphere in the school, I would like to know some schools with liberal atmosphere( meaning much freedom); nice people and nice food;good liberal art education( I would never ever major in anything related to science..haha)
So...any recommendations??
Thank you so much for your reply</p>

<p>We need a LOT more before we can help you. What are you stats and EC's? What exactly do you want in a school (the stuff you said above is VERY general)? Tell us all this, and we'll do our best to assist you.</p>
