Hi @jacksonsoto, In your college search, my advice is to try not to ignore schools that are not well known. Rather, it is wise to consider what would best prepare you for your career over prestige. I myself could get into a top school but it wouldn't practically prepare me for my life work. Instead, I have decided to attend a small private school that has stats below me b/c it will train me well for my career. Also, b/c it is below my stats, I have high chances of full ride scholarships.

BYW it is not bad to aspire to attend an IVY, just consider what will be best for you and your situation.
