What university/college is best for me?

Hello everyone!

I am currently a high school Junior. I will be applying for entrance into college for the fall of 2024. I currently I have an unweighted GPA of 3.81 and weighted GPA of 3.97. I am taking lots of advanced classes next year. I have very strong extracurriculars both in and out of school that are diverse. I am applying test optional. I am interested in Bio, Genetics, Research, Neuroscience, and Psychology. I originally wanted to be a doctor (pre-med track), but am unsure now. Other than the sciences, l like Business Management and Administration. My back up major if I decided against Business and the Sciences is Education. Please let me know what colleges you think are attainable or the best fit to explore my interests.

Preferences:

-Mid Size

-Suburban/Small City

-Colder Weather (Chicago,Boston,Seattle etc.)

-Good Food & Nice People

List of Colleges I am Considering:

Reach

Case Western Reserve University

Boston College

Target

University of Rochester

University of Wisconsin- Madison

St.Olaf College

Safety

University of Illinois: Urbana-Champaign

University of Washington-Seattle

Thank you!

Hi @Student7of9!

Since you have a lot of varied interests, you should also look into liberal arts colleges (LACs). You can find a list of LACs online.

I don't know what state you're from, but I wouldn't consider both UIUC and UW-Seattle as safeties.

In the area of health it's good to give a look at John's Hopkins although the climate is a little warmer then Boston for example.
