<p>So recently, I've been worrying about college, and which one I should shoot for.
The thing is, I'm really trying to go for schools that are well-known and with a good reputation.
I live in Southern California, and I'd like to go to a school basically anywhere in the US, but I'd prefer places either in or close to a large city.
My GPA overall, unweighted, is about between 3.4 - 3.6. Weighted is around 3.7, but my school uses the 4.0 scale. My SAT score is between 2000 and 2100 (closer to 2000). I expect both my GPA and SAT to be higher next year. I'm fairly good with essays, and I have decent volunteer work service. My school's api score was 890 last year, the average for asians being 920-something, which I am. </p>
<p>Please help me out by recommending some schools to me! Basically, I want to know what the best schools I can make it to are, as well as some that I can probably make that sound like good schools. :)</p>
<p>I'm currently considering:
The UC's, besides Berkeley and UCLA
University of Illinois at Chicago (and possible Urbana-Champaign)
University of Washington</p>
