Would appreciate any feedback on a college list for my son - a current senior at a big public high school in NE.
GPA is a 4.0 UW and a 4.35W (school doesn’t rank but probably in the top 4-6%). Got one B+ freshman year, rest As. Honors and AP courses - three AP courses done - two fives and a four on the three AP tests. Currently taking three more AP courses.
SAT - took them twice and superscore of 1560 (800 math).
Some ECs but many - volunteer assignments, couple clubs but no leadership positions. Currently starting a job at a software company as a grunt intern.
Did not fill out FASA, expect to be full pay (but any merit would be nice).
His first choice for major is Computer Science but he is not 100% set on that. He is 100% caucasion and both of us parents went to college.
Schools under consideration: UVA, William & Mary, Pitt Honors, RIT, Rochester, Boston College, Northeastern, Villanova, our State school, Wesleyan (bit smaller than what he thinks is his size match), Brown (long shot I assume).
He is more comfortable in a mid-sized school not in a big urban area.
Any and all feedback on this list would be greatly appreciated, as well as names of other schools to consider.
