Need Help Finding College with my Skill Level

<p>Too often my high school's naviance site and the books i buy to help me with my college search contradict each other, so I'm just going to ask here and see if people are better than words.
Heres my credentials/faults
91 GPA
2230 on SAT
780 on SAT Math 2
710 on SAT English Lit.
780 on SAT Biology M
Faults: I was suspended for 5 days in my freshmen year for arguing with another student. I have not been named for misbehavior since.</p>

<p>College: I want to find a college that has good statistics and biology programs, and is located in a city. </p>

<p>With the above information, could any of you please recommend a few colleges, and perhaps even give some advice on what to do next to impress colleges?</p>

<p>Your naviance is probably more accurate than a general book. Feeder schools don't follow the general pattern. What can your family afford and what is your home state?</p>

<p>My home state is New Jersey, and my family can afford whatever</p>

<p>Anyone help please?</p>

<p>In addition to all the commonly-known schools, also Case Western, maybe Rose Hulman. Most state flagships will have good bio and statistics; just because you CAN afford private college doesn't mean you have to. You could be in the honors programs and get many benes of a small private school along with all the benes of being in a large state U. Barrett/AZ State, Cook Honors College, etc. </p>

<p>There are lots of choices - if all you care about is good bio, stats, and a city, you don't have to go very far to find anything. OTOH, if you want Greek life, surfing, skiing, challenging classes, grade inflation because you're pre-med, a dance group, etc., you will need to give us more details.</p>

<p>BTW, five days' suspension for "arguing"? Hmmm...</p>

<p>^^Yeah, my school has strict rules.
I want challenging classes but still an opportunity for some social life.
As for details, I just want to maximize the few things that i really want.</p>

<p>Case is a good choice and offers some merit aid.</p>

<p>With your score, you shouldn't be concerned with where you can apply and where you can't. I know this may sound too specific, but U of Penn has a coordinated dual degree program called LSM (Life Science Management), where you can major in biology (under CAS) and statistics (under Wharton), and when you graduate, you'll get a BA in Biology (I believe) and BS in Economics. It's very selective (less than 5% admit for sure), so consider applying ED if you are interested after doing some research. Good luck!</p>

<p>(I'm not trying to be some crazy Penn "convert", but I just love Penn so much, haha)</p>

<p>Have you thought about UC Berkeley? If you can afford it as an out of state student why not? or UCLA.</p>

<p>"College: I want to find a college that has good statistics and biology programs, and is located in a city."</p>

<p>Size? Would you consider a LAC? Part of the country? </p>

<p>I don't think a suspension in 9th grade is going to be a big deal.</p>

<p>Huge thanks to all that have replied
I will look at Case (thanks GeekMom and Erin's Dad)
to felicity: thanks! but according to my school's naviance site, i have as much chance to get into UPenn as a fly has of toppling a skyscraper. I certainly will apply to UPenn though, just in case the building is unstable, to continue the previous analogy.
kosherasian: UC Berkeley and UCLA are two of my top personal choices actually. I was born in LA (the UCLA hospital, to be exact) and thats where my dad finished his biostatistics PhD. Only problem is that as above, my school's naviance site isnt too encouraging.
To M's Mom: Maybe I should Expand my description of city as a very urban area</p>

<p>If you like NYC, definitely look into Columbia. Also, MIT and Harvard are in Boston, so they fit the bill. Stanford is Bay Area region, with great biology and pretty much anything. It would be nice to know your EC's though. Also: Boston University, USC, University of Chicago. I'm not sure how stronge their statistocs programs are though. And don't worry about not getting in, the only way to be sure to not get in to a school is to not apply. And if you have good EC's, you'll have as much a chance as anyone.</p>
