My son is interested in majoring in secondary education in Math and or business analytics. He would like to attend college that has about 4000-10000 students in the northeast. He has about a 90 average from a competitive private high school and will probably score around 1300 or so on the SAT. He is a junior and will take the SAT in May. We hope to receive some merit aid since we will have about 200k for the four years.
His interests are skiing, hiking and clubs. Sports are not a major interest.
I am looking for suggestions for colleges to explore with him. He has been to University of Vermont ( liked it a lot), Saint Anselme College ( nice but -too small), Sacred Heart University ( liked it), Binghamton ( ok-price would be great), Salve Regina ( too small), URI (did not like it), Holy Cross ( expensive-no merit offered), UNH ( liked it-heard college having financial cuts to faculty and staff) and Scranton (ok-wasn’t crazy about the city). We drove through St. Michael’s College in Vermont( did not like it) and Providence ( too tired to explore due to 2 tours that day-heard they are stingy on merit money).We plan on looking at University of Loyola (MD), St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Susquehanna ( may be too small), Fairfield and Marist. Do know know much about Roger William University or Stonehill.
Ideally, he would like to be able to go skiing on the weekends.
We may explore other SUNY colleges and Plymouth St.
