Which universities that I listed below fit me the most with my stats? Which unis can I add to this list?

Hi! Here are some schools that I like after doing some research:

- Dartmouth, Barnard, Williams, Amherst, Duke, UC Berkeley, Uchicago, Vassar

I'd like to get some opinions on which schools would suit me the most based on my specific extracurriculars, interests, and stats. I also want to know opinions about other unis I should look into that you think would suit me.

Demographics:

- Junior year, International student

- Private/International School

- Female

- 2nd gen, no legacy

Intended Major(s):

Sociology or Economics

GPA, Rank, and Test Scores:

- Unweighted HS GPA: 3.8 (from sophomore year)

- SAT Score: 1510

- Coursework: IBDP - 4 HLs, 2 SLs

- the IBDP program is the most rigorous my school offers. We have no A-levels or AP, and this is the maximum number of subjects (and HLs) I can take.

Awards:

- John Locke Essay Competition High Distinction (20,000 participants total, ranked top 5% of shortlists)

- 6 MUN awards (most from the varsity/open circuit) & Chaired in YaleMUN

- MVP of varsity sports team

Extracurriculars:

- Internship in a ministry

- Economics summer school

- Student council (4 years): Had a leadership position in this

- MUN club: student coach, but has taken up several leadership positions for conferences (the highest being secretary general)

- Varsity sports team captain

- TEDx speaker

- Investment competition team leader

Volunteering:

- Supervised, taught music, and raised fundraisers for students from less fortunate areas

- Taught MUN to refugees from the Middle East

Thanks!

I think you can fit in UC Berkeley, but you could also try your changes on ivies, your GPA is just about average for the schools, sat is also around average for the schools, but your ECs are stacked.

That is why I suggested those, you can probably get to most of the college or university you want.
