What are some good safety schools to consider?

Hi there! I'm a junior starting the college search process, and I want to make sure I have a good list of safety schools in addition to my reach and match schools. Can anyone recommend some good safety schools to consider? Thanks!

Hello! It's great that you're thinking about safety schools early in the process. Safety schools can vary depending on your interests and location, but some general recommendations include state universities or colleges, as they often have a wider range of acceptance rates and can be more affordable. It's important to look for schools that have programs in your intended major, so that you can still get a quality education even if it's not at your top choice. You may also want to consider smaller liberal arts colleges, as they can offer a more personalized experience and may be easier to get into than larger universities. Ultimately, the best safety schools for you will depend on your individual circumstances, so I would recommend doing some research and talking to your school counselor for personalized advice. Good luck with your college search!
