what do you think?

<p>I'm an Asian female attending school at Forest Hills HS in NYC. I'm an average student, SAT score was a 1700 (1080 CR+M). My GPA is probably somewhere around a (I'm not sure, transcripts weren't available for juniors) 2.9-3.0 (3.1-3.2 weighted). I'll have some time to bring the grades up. I do a lot of volunteering and I am active in two clubs at school. I also have two internships and a part-time job in the upcoming school year (my senior year). I've also worked in my junior year and recommendation letters shouldn't be a problem for me. </p>

<p>My reach/target schools:</p>

<p>Binghamton University (applying EOP) (reach)</p>

<p>Ohio University (No, not OSU!) (major: entering as undecided or possibly as a business major) (early action)</p>

<p>Stony Brook University (applying EOP)</p>

<p>SUNY Plattsburgh (applying EOP)</p>

<p>Brooklyn College (CUNY)</p>

<p>University of New Hampshire (Durham) </p>

<p>Safeties:</p>

<p>City College (CUNY)
John Jay College (CUNY)
College of Staten Island (CUNY) </p>

<p>(CUNYs are all under one app, six schools per app. for one fee, for anyone who was wondering why I would apply to so many schools)</p>

<p>I was wondering what other schools I may have a chance with/how I'd fare with ^ schools. Thanks! : )</p>

<p>bump......</p>

<p>Those are a lot of OOS schools which means a very tuition and not a lot of scholarships available to you - especially since your GPA isn't too stellar. I'd stick to in-states unless you're loaded with cash. And if possible, try and retake the SATs this fall aiming for at least a 1950 - it's possible with books & practice! Best of luck :]</p>

<p>the only OOS schools I have listed ^ are OU, & UNH lol
thank you for the suggestions!
I've taken the SAT twice and both scores and my PSAT score were exactly the same- 1700 for all 3 tests.
Should I retake the SAT or think about taking the Sept. ACT?</p>

<p>bump......</p>

<p>I would retake the SAT one last time in october.</p>

<p>I would definitely try your hand at the ACT in the fall. I'm sorry, I do not know much about your schools to chance you. In the "Colleges" section of College Confidential you can look up a specific school and then go to "Applicant Stats" to see other members who listed their GPA an SAT scores, if you are curious how others compare to you.</p>

<p>Thank you, guys!</p>
