Women's college recommendations for an international student

I'm an international student looking to apply for entry for Fall 2021.
I'm looking for a fairly liberal school, no preference on location, and I'm looking to major in biology so a good department would be great.
If the SAT isn't completely cancelled this summer, I'm looking to take it - I'm aiming for 780 in Maths and 720 on RWL - and my grades convert to a 4.0 unweighted GPA.

I've looked so far at Bryn Mawr, Smith, Agnes Scott and Mount Holyoke.

Any opinions on these colleges and any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

    These all are good places to study. The difference for you would be the location (in a city vs. near a city vs. more rural), ease of transportation for you to get there and back to your home once or twice each year, and reputation in your own country (so that you can get a job after graduation).

    Hi there! I'm a current Bryn Mawr junior, and it sounds like Bryn Mawr would definitely meet all of what you're looking for! About a third of students major in natural sciences, so we have a major STEM presence for a liberal arts school. You seem like a great fit! If you have any questions about Bryn Mawr, let me know!

    Smith definitely meets your requirements. I'd also suggest looking into Scripps and, if your SAT goes as expected, Wellesley.

    I'd be happy to answer any additional questions you have about Smith, as I'm a current student.
