So besides a medium/ big school, do you know what you want to study? Do you want a research or liberal arts school? How important is financial aid? What are preferences for location (state/region) and campus style (college town city rural)?

If you scroll a fair bit down there’s a rudimentary list but if you can provide a bit more info I can likely get you a more in-depth list.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!

Edited for spelling and clarity

I want a good research school, I want to study in the field of science. Financial aid is not a huge factor. I would prefer a urban or suburban college town. Thank you so much for your help!!
So by science I presume you mean natural sciences like physics biology enviro science etc? If so some good ones (target/reach) are UNL Oregon CU Boulder San Diego St Houston Oklahoma Minn TC UGA Miami(FL) SC George Mason Louisville Tenn Temple Buffalo Rutgers. All of these rughly have a high 3.6 to a low 3.7 and are in big or mid sized cities. Its defitintly not a complete list but hope this helps! Also if you found this helpful would you mind accepting the answer if not no problem!
