<p>What do you think my chances are? Can you recommend other good colleges?</p>

<p>What do you plan to major in? Your extracurricular activities show no direction of your desired interest, unless you plan to major in Education. The stats you have are average considering you are a minority, and BU and Northeastern might be tough to get into. I recommend looking at the SUNY’s or other state colleges.</p>

<p>How much will your family pay per year? </p>

<p>Your family budget for college will largely determine where you should apply.</p>

<p>BU and NEU would be very expensive. Ask your parents if they’ll pay for those schools…about $55k+ per year.</p>

<p>Would you be considered in-state anywhere?</p>

<p>I would never go to a college in puerto rico</p>

<p>Ok…but you’re OOS for all the schools in the 50 states. Your residency is based on where your parents live. If they move back to the states, then you’d be instate for that state after 12 months.</p>

<p>Since your stats are modest, we need to know how much your family will pay. If they won’t pay much, then that will be a problem.</p>

<p>I know it’s frustrating, but the truth is that students with modest stats often are limited to the schools within their areas because they can’t get accepted to the schools with the best aid. </p>

<p>There’s a reason why most American students have to commute to their local CC or state school. They don’t have the funds to go elsewhere. </p>

<p>However, if your parents will pay $55k+ per year for any school, then there are some choices for you.</p>
