Need Help

<p>I've changed my mind so much, but I think I am finally set on what I want to do. I'm going to major in Finance. I should have about a 3.5 GPA with around a 1270 SAT(hopefully, have to wait for May SATs and 2 more weeks of school). I'm looking for a good school for business with great career resources. I'd like to go into financial research probably but I am not sure. If you could give me some ideas, I've already done a lot of research about Indiana.</p>

<p>Here's a few schools i'd look at...</p>

University of Michigan–Ann Arbor *
University of Florida (Warrington) *
U. of North Carolina–Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler) *
University of Virginia (McIntire) *
Univ. of Southern California (Marshall) </p>

University of Texas–Austin (McCombs) *
U. of Illinois–Urbana-Champaign *
Univ. of Maryland–College Park (Smith) *
Univ. of Wisconsin–Madison *
University of Washington *
Pennsylvania State U.–University Park (Smeal) * </p>

Ohio State University–Columbus (Fisher) *
Indiana University–Bloomington (Kelley) *
Purdue Univ.–West Lafayette (Krannert) (IN) *</p>

<p>What if I end up with a 3.3 GPA will a lot of the matches move up to reaches?</p>

<p>UVA, UFL and UNC arent gonna happen, especially out of state.
I'd say alot of the matches look pretty good for you. Indiana is a great choice too. Great education, although it's too greek/alcohol happy for me.</p>

<p>Ya, that worries me JPod.</p>

<p>What about Mass. schools? Join me at BU :)</p>

<p>Dude, forget BU. come to USC</p>

<p>Yes, i'm sure he'd love to go cross-country! /sarcasm</p>

<p>Why not go cross country? i am</p>

<p>because it's a hassle</p>

<p>Dude, living close to home is a hassle</p>

<p>You need a buffer zone (preferably over 1000 miles)</p>

<p>BU is my number one choice right now. I'm trying to find schools that if I don't get into BU that I would like to go to school at.</p>

<p>A 3.3 GPA would make all those matches reaches, and those safeties matches.</p>

<p>Why Boston U if you're looking at Finance? They aren't even in the top 25 for Finance. However, I strongly suggest fit for your UG school, even if it means going to one that may not be as strong in your subject.</p>

<p>I love Boston. I'm doing a summer program this year there to see if it really is my number one choice.</p>

<p>And I live in Georgia just to let you guys know and I would prefer to go to a more liberal-minded school.</p>

<p>bump it up</p>

<p>bump it up again, I'd appreciate some more opinions, thanks</p>

<p>again sorry</p>

<p>Would University of Minnesota be a match?</p>

<p>With a 3.5, Minnesota would be a safety. With a 3.3, it'd be a match.</p>
