What schools to apply to!?!?

<p>OK so I know my scores are terrible, but I just want to know like what schools do you guys think should I "take a shot" at? I know most schools would be a reach but if you guys would post them anyway I would be thrilled! </p>

<p>General Info: male, white, rising senior, PA resident, want to go to school in PA</p>

<p>Major: ? I want to be a sports agent, and I have no idea what major would be helpful</p>


<p>95.8 cumulative weighted avg (9th, 10th, 11th)
rank: 20/115 after 11th grade</p>

<p>9th grade: went to a different school (Youth Services) because in 8th grade i missed 30 days of school. My mom was working out of town and I was basically living by myself at the age of 15 so my original high school decided to put me in this school for a year until my mom got her regular job back. I might decide to write about this in an essay for college.</p>

<p>3 solid recommendations and I am currently working on my application essay</p>


<p>i guess look at some of the other penn state campuses...</p>

<p>sorry, your courseload isn't impressive and your scores are kinda sub-par</p>

<p>Thx IBfootballer, I was looking into some of the psu branch campuses and some other schools as well. I really think I want to attend Duquesne University, b/c they have a sports marketing major there. Would that be a good match? Or is that WAY too much of a reach?</p>

<p>jbar - don't let IBfootballer knock you down! Your scores are fine for a TON of PA schools, and you will have a lot of options. You are not limited to publics. You need to share what you want in a school as far as culture/size/etc to get suggestions.</p>

<p>your scores are a bit low for Duquense. Each of your scores is below the middle 50% mark. I'm guessing you'd need to raise them a good 50 points each section to be relatively safe.</p>

<p>I'm afraid that being around the national average for SAT score is not going to give you a ton of options at 4-year colleges. Your grades, however, are a lot higher than the average person with your SAT score. You should def. try to up your scores a bit.</p>
