Warm year round east coast schools

<p>Hi i am from new york and want to go to school somewhere warm. i have a 28 ACT and 1800 sat with a 3.6 unweighted gpa. so far i have applied to college of charleston. here is a list of things im looking for in a school, please help me find some schools to apply to.</p>

<p>Warm year round
east coast
people from northeast ( dont want to feel like a outcast)
4,000 undergrads or more
on my academic level
im going pre med so dont want to spend a fortune on undergrad</p>

<p>One of the Florida state schools???</p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>Tulane, Elon, possibly Miami (but a little reachy with a 28), College of Charleston</p>

<p>You are a junior, right? Because you have already missed the EA deadlines at Elon and Miami....</p>

<p>Miami and Tulane may be over your price range, but with your stats, only a public would be reasonable unless you get merit. </p>

<p>Honestly, for pre-med, go to your cheapest option..</p>

<p>^^^</p>

<p>I think the OP is a senior. Tulane will be a high reach with a 28 - Tulane has been rejecting kids with ACT 30 & 31. </p>

<p>im going pre med so dont want to spend a fortune on undergrad</p>

<p>*on my academic level

<p>Since you have an ACT 28 and want to do the pre-med pre-reqs, I suggest that you choose your undergrad carefully otherwise too many of your pre-med classmates are going to be stronger students than you are. Pre-med classes are weeder courses...A's are limited. In your earlier thread I suggested UAlabama because it's within your budget and has a lot of OOS kids (including from the NE), but I'm concerned that your pre-med classmates would be above your academic level and you'd find it harder to get A's in your pre-reqs. My son is pre-med at Bama and his pre-med classmates are mostly NMFs and high stats kids.</p>

<p>edited to add: Rodney makes a great point below. You need to find a school where an ACT 28 is within the top 25% of the school - otherwise you're going to have a tough time as a pre-med student. That's going to be a challenge to find that AND a school that is strong in sciences.</p>

<p>*people from northeast ( dont want to feel like a outcast)

<p>Check each schools' OOS numbers. Schools that have low OOS numbers won't likely have too many NE students.</p>

<p>If the OP is a senior he/ she better get going; alot of the publics have EA deadlines that are literally now....</p>

<p>And I agree with the above, unless you attend a public where you are in the top 25% of applicants, pre-med is going to weed out.....</p>

<p>I still like College of Charleston.</p>

<p>What do people think about the possibility of Clemson?</p>

<p>If you are thinking of Clemson, look at University of South Carolina, too.</p>

<p>Take a look at Clemson!! I'm a junior there majoring in civil engineering so feel free to let me know if you have any questions!!</p>

<p>Warm year round - from the admissions website: "At Clemson we experience all four seasons. Since we are in the South, we have a short winter and an extended spring and summer. If you have attended a summer orientation in July, you might know something about our warm summers. However, about once every couple of years we get a little snow, usually around early February. Normally, the accumulation of snow is between three and four inches, which is about the only time classes get cancelled."</p>

<p>east coast - It's in South Carolina so yes its on the east coast</p>

<p>people from northeast - I'm from the Boston, MA suburbs. From the northeast states (MA, CT, RI, VT, NH, ME) there are 535 students so that's about 3% of the student population.</p>

<p>4,000 undergrads or more - We have 14,506 undergraduates and 2,667 graduate students</p>

<p>on my academic level - it's the 22nd best public university so it is not a top top university but it is solid academically.</p>

<p>im going pre med so dont want to spend a fortune on undergrad - It's a public university so it's already cheaper than private universities. Here are the tuition rates: Tuition</a> and Fees : Clemson University</p>

<p>For some reason, I thought the OP was looking at larger than 4,000 but not tens of thousands...but you guys could be right, and me wrong...</p>

<p>In that case, I definitely agree a look-see at Clemson, USC-Columbia would be in order......</p>

<p>well I interpreted it as that he didn't want to go to a small school. Clemson is a perfect mid-size school. It's not 40,000 people like some Big 10 schools but it's not tiny either.</p>

<p>Also take a look at the University of Georgia, Florida State or the University of Miami</p>

<p>How about UGA? I'm from Georgia and its pretty warm year round with the exception of late December through February (and that still probably isn't too bad compared to the north). It might snow for 3-5 days per year. There's a good amount of out of state kids, it's a large school, and I think your stats are on level with a lot of kids at UGA.</p>

<p>Thanks for all the advice everyone, i would love to go to miami but its just going to be too expnsive. i really like how college of charleston sounds. anyone know some more schools in florida with a lot of OOS ?</p>

<p>most of the cheap schools in Florida are mostly made up of in-state students. What about New College of Florida? It only has 20% OOS students but it is a very good public liberal arts college.</p>

<p>They might be too small for you, but Rollins, Eckerd, Stetson and Florida Southern are all Florida LACs you have a good shot at getting into.</p>

<p>oh oops I forgot about the 4,000 student requirement. Disregard New College of Florida then haha</p>
