Stats for my c/o ‘22 daughter:
4.0 unweighted GPA
Will have 5 AP classes (predicted 4s/5s)
1300 SAT first time (760 English, 540 math)
Good ECs and volunteering but no leadership
We are a US military family who will have lived in Asia (Korea/Japan) for all her high school years, her brother is headed to Univ or Florida for engineering and both parents are engineers.
She is planing to apply to Mt Holyoke early decision but is realistic that it is currently a reach. She is studying for the math SAT and plans to raise that score by at least 100 points. She is drawn to women’s colleges and liberal campuses in contrast to her childhood in a more conservative, male-dominated culture.
What other colleges should we be looking at with liberal campuses, collaborative vs competitive learning, beautiful campuses, not hot, not in the South or Midwest?
She has access to Bright Futures full tuition in Florida but isn’t excited about anything in that state for cultural and climate reasons. Other backups would depend on where parents move next, possibly Univ of Hawaii.
She is interested in liberal arts in the public policy, anthropology, legal studies, etc arena- but mostly undecided. She has access to her dad’s GI Bill which makes most schools in consideration financially.
Any advice? Thank you!!
