Good Colleges in the southeast/east coast

I live in NC, and I'd rather not go too far for college, but I don't want to stay in-state. I'm a fairly high-achieving student with plenty of extracurriculars and such, so I have a decent chance of getting into most colleges. Could someone recommend to me some colleges in the aforementioned area?

There are really great colleges on the East Coast but I would guess it would depend on what you want. Boston College is great if you want to be in an area with good internship possibilities but you have to be ok with a large college. Dickinson (PA) has a good reputation; they are really committed to sustainability and social justice. The school is on the small side if you like small classes. University of Maryland also has a good reputation and excellent professors, especially in the pre-profession majors. It is a very large school. Two primo schools, George Washington University in Washington DC and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, are both highly regarded. This is by no means a comprehensive list but it's a start. If you have an idea of what size school you want and a major in mind, it will be easier to narrow it down. Good luck!
