<p>what are some other schools your considering? so we can get a feel for what you like maybe?</p>

<p>That's pretty disgusting that you went on a church retreat. What kind of Jew are you???</p>

<p>nothing wrong with your state school- umd is great</p>

<p>yeah retreat isnt the right word. it was a volunteering thing. we went to west virginia to do commmunity service. there really wasnt any praying, so i felt really comfortable. I also found it really interesting to see other religions. im kinda weird.</p>

<p>my other schools are:
Wake Forest
Bucknell
Lehigh
Vanderbilt</p>

<p>so im looking for some more. and more safe schools cause i dont really have any yet.</p>

<p>any ideas??</p>

<p>What about your state schools?</p>

<p>i think i maybe applyin to UMCP but im looking for some outside the state. Not looking for safe schools that are other state schools tho.</p>

<p>How about American and George Washington U? Sounds as if you prefer the mid-Atlantic region. American may be good. Fordham may be good.</p>

<p>Vandy
USC
Wake
Lehigh
Boston College
Colgate
Miami
Delaware (as a safety)</p>

<p>Villanova, Dickinson, F&M, Gettysburg, Allegheny, Union, Skidmore, Hobart, Syracuse.</p>

<p>He said "medium/large sized," so myaybe the smaller LACs aren't even a possibility. Safeties: Ohio University, Miami University (Ohio), Michigan State, Inidana U., Tulane, University of Vermont, U of New Hampshire, U of Miami, U of Richmond, Clark University (Worcester, Mass.).</p>
