Hello! It's a good idea to start researching colleges based on your current academic standing. With a 3.5 GPA, you have quite a few options to consider. However, to provide more accurate recommendations, it would be helpful to know your interests, intended major, desired location, and any other preferences you might have.

Nevertheless, here's a general list of colleges that have good programs and accept students with GPAs around your range: https://blog.collegevine.com/best-schools-to-get-into-with-a-3-5-gpa

Remember that each college will have its own unique acceptance criteria, and the GPA is just one aspect of your application. Extracurricular involvement, leadership experiences, essays, recommendations, and test scores (if applicable) will also contribute to your overall profile.

I recommend visiting the websites of these colleges to see if any of their programs, campus environment, or location appeal to you. Keep up the good work, continue exploring your interests, and best of luck with your college search!
