Essay: I’m a strong essay writer with lots of possible proofreaders, so hopefully I’ll be fine there:
LORs: I’m not close with any humanities teachers yet, but I’m slated to have one teacher (calc/physics) for all four years. As he knows me pretty well, he’ll be a good LOR.
Summer plans: apply for math program (hopefully one of the free ones), take another math class, or hopefully do some research.
Cost Constraints / Budget
Unknown- our financial situation is oscillating because my parents are self-employs, so it could be nothing or I could have a budget upwards of 80k. Although the finance situation isn’t the best, please match me with schools that are attainable stats-wise, even if not quite money-wise.
My GPA is dragged down from poor performance in freshman year due to mental illness, but other than that, I’ve been getting straight As and got straight As in every college class that wasn’t during freshman year. I’m looking for colleges with a large focus in math and preferably smaller colleges. I’m hoping for Harvey Mudd or a school like it, but that’s likely not plausible with my weak ECs. I also need to mention I don’t have much familial support- they are quite against me “stressing myself out,” so I end up doing everything by myself without help.
Please give me suggestions for any schools,whether safety or reach or anything in between.
