What schools should I consider applying to...

<p>I know my stats aren't the best: </p>

<p>GPA: 2.79 (Unweighted)
SAT: 1710</p>

<p>630 - Critical Reading,
590 - Writing,
490 - Math. I hope to retake the SAT this November and improve my math score.</p>

<p>Now, what are some schools that I should consider, preferably on the west coast. I'd also like to attend a small school. </p>

<p>St Mary's College of California and University of San Francisco are the only two schools that I feel I have looked into so far.


<p>A few questions for you--
(1) Do you want to stay local to the San Francisco area?
(2) Do you want to limit yourself to Catholic or Jesuit schools?
(3) What do you want to major in?
(4) What year are you?
(5) Is there any chance (or time) to raise that GPA?
(6) What is the weighted GPA?</p>

<p>If the answer to (1) and (2) are yes, then you've basically picked out the only two schools (although you can also consider Notre Dame de Namur).</p>

<p>Otherwise, give us answers to the others and we'll give you chances.</p>

<li><p>No, any location would be fine as long, as I said, it was on the west coast. I haven;t considered any Universities that are further away yet.</p></li>
<li><p>Either English or Psychology, my main goal is to fulfill the prerequisites for medical school. </p></li>
<li><p>Senior in high school </p></li>
<li><p>No, unless I attend community college? </p></li>
<li><p>Somewhere around a 3.3, I need to ask my counselor.</p></li>

<p>Here are some possibilities:</p>

<p>In California:
Sonoma State (Slight Reach)
San Jose State (Slight Reach)
Cal State East Bay
Westmont College
Point Loma Nazarene
San Francisco State University
Thomas Aquinas College
University of the Pacific
Humboldt State
Chapman College
Biola College
Chico State</p>

<p>In Washington:
Evergreen State
Western Washington
University of Puget Sound (Slight Reach)</p>

<p>In Oregon:
Oregon State University
Pacific University
University of Portland
Corban College
Concordia University</p>

<p>Of all of these, I would suggest you check out University of Portland, Oregon State, Humboldt State, and Sonoma State the most, since they offer the type of pre-med program/biological sciences/health professions major you are apparently looking for.</p>

<p>Thanks, I really appreaciate the response!</p>

<p>Community college.
Actually try in school for once, transfer into some UC, have fun, decide on a major, maybe medical school when you're done.</p>
