SUNY Madness

<p>I have literally no idea where to apply to college, or what would make a college desireable to me. I just know that I want to go to a SUNY school, because I'll probably need to get a loan and don't plan on being crazy in debt and having to pay off x amount of dollars every month for the rest of my life. I live in New York and don't want to stay at home, so SUNY is really my best option.
Thing is..
I don't know which one to pick. I've basically narrowed it down to</p>

<p>Albany
Fredonia
Cobleskill
Cortland
Potsdam
Morrisville</p>

<p>I feel like Albany & Fredonia are good fits, I just don't know whether or not I'll be able to get into them.
I have an 83% average, and my only real extracurricular activity is yearbook.
My October 2011 SAT scores were 450 math, 520 reading, 500 writing.
Those kind of suck so.. I'm taking it again in December.</p>

<p>I really just want to know what you guys think my chances are of getting into those schools?
I'm pretty sure I'd be able to get into Potsdam and Morrisville, but I have no idea about the other four.
HELP.
Any & all information/suggestions/questions are appreciated.</p>

<p>You can assess your own chances. Look at the Common Data Set from Albany <a href="http://www.albany.edu/ir/cds/cds_2010_11/freshman.htm%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.albany.edu/ir/cds/cds_2010_11/freshman.htm&lt;/a> Section C7 states ECs are only considered - your essay gets more weight. Going to section C9 shows your Math is below the 25%ile for enrolled students. An 83% GPA converts to something below a 3.0 which in section C11 shows your grades are near the bottom 15%ile. That's a reach.</p>

<p>Go to the Suny.edu site and input the schools you are interested in and check out their stats.</p>

<p>I think Albany, Fredonia and Potsdam are reaches, the others may be ok.</p>

<p>Thanks you guys.
I'll definitely check out that website.
If anyone else has wisdom to share, go on :p</p>

<p>Anyone? Anything?</p>
