<p>Okay so I used to have a solid college list that consisted of UCLA, Northwestern, and other places I had no idea would reject me in a jiff, not only because I have weak statistics BUT also for the fact that as a Micronesian, I would be quite an expensive student. So right now I'm trying to compile a new and improved list of colleges that would make more sense for me. I hope you all are willing to offer some of your help. Thanks so much! =)</p>

-Straight A's this whole year
-Received 2 B's, one in Freshman year and one in Sophomore year

-SAT IIs: haven't taken any yet, but I'm going to take Biology, Chemistry, and Math sometime during the first semester of my senior year
-ACTs: will not be taking
-Rank: Top 5% out of about 200 students. Possibly #1, but I'll never know that until senior year. And anyway even if I did rank #1 or #2, I can't get recognized as the valedictorian or salutatorian because I need to have been in the school system for 3 years (I've only been in it for 2.5).</p>

<p>Okay, so this is what my profile looks like. Not so impressive, I know. I've seen many of these chances threads and they are just absolutely AMAZING. I've even seen ones that make the absolutely AMAZING profiles look like absolute butt. But it's okay =) I know I belong somewhere; I just need help figuring out exactly where that is. So please help this Micronesian from a 45 square-mile island figure out which part of the real world is right for her. Again, thank you for your time!</p>
<p>P.S. I would love to chance back but I have limited knowledge as to what specific schools are looking for in students. Sorry!</p>
