<p>what would you guys recommend for me some good publics?
(same difficulty as stated above, or less)</p>

<p>what is your state?
The most affordable and easiest entry is generally going to be instate
That said my daughter who is interested in biology applied to westernwa, central wa, evergreen state college which is a LAC and University of Oregon- Reed was the only private she applied to.
We are in Seattle she didn't want UW cause it was too close and too big.
Good school however.</p>

<p>U of Maryland, Penn State, Clemson. Virginia Tech for engineering or science major</p>

<p>UVA and UNC, but they might not fit you preference as to level of difficulty.</p>
