Currently I am applying to Notre Dame, Boston College, U of Illinois Urbana, and Indiana U. I am looking for a "match school" in the midwest or out east. My stats would be...

ACT-29 (retaking)
Class rank- 54/844 (Top 7%, affluent school that sends roughly 10 kids to the Ivy League)
AP's
Sophomore year: European Hist- 4
Junior year: US History-5
Current
Biology
Psychology
English Lit & Comp
Also Italian IV Honors
My most significant EC's would be tennis all 4 years, church league basketball all 4 years, classroom representative to Student Council all 4 years, and treasurer of NHS.

PS: Don't reccomend Wisconsin Madison or Michigan Ann Arbor.

Any help is appreciated.

missouri would seem to be a big safety school for me. What else do you need to know?

Penn State, Tufts, Case Western???

I don't like penn state or case western. I was under the impression Tufts would be a reach though. Anyone else?

Yeah, mizzou is DEFINITELY a safety, and probably not what you want if you're looking at ND

that's what i thought..

Looks like you're interested in some Catholic schools so my recommendations would be:
Creighton, Marquette in the midwest
Villanova, Loyola Maryland, Fairfield, Providence College in the northeast

For non-Catholic schools in the midwest: Lawrence, the College of Wooster, Denison would be good matches.

By Asknot11 (Asknot11) on Saturday, September 13, 2003 - 04:39 pm: Edit

Someone actually reccommended Villanova as a match for me before. Thank you for the advice.
