Looking for ideas. Want college with school spirit, interest in sports. Interested possibly in health career or business. Any ideas?
Don't think ones with huge classes are good for me.

Check out Boston College (reach), Boston University (reach), Northeastern (match), Syracuse(match),UConn (match), and UMass (safety).

University of Maryland...granted its a big school, TONS of school spirit in football basketball and lax....business school is awesome, but you'll need a 1300 or higher to get into the bus. school. I'm going there for journalism....I had 1250 and was a high B+ student. good luck

Syracuse has school spirit up the wazoo. Maybe Villanova? I don't know much about its selectivity though.

You guys are forgetting Indiana University-Bloomington. Incredible schools spirit, gorgeous campus, quaint and fun little college town and a top 10 Business School. Mean SAT score is 1100, mean GPA of eventering class is 3.5.

That would be my first choice given your interests and credentials.

Alexandre - what about huge classes? What's IU usual class siaze?

Gettysburg in Pennsylvania might be an option for you. Has excellent pre-health science programs and a good business program as well. It's a smaller school with lots of personalized attention. Dickinson, Lafayette, and Franklin & Marshall - all also in Pennsylvania - would also fit what you're looking for in terms of class size and programs. They'd be realistic reaches for you. You might also check into Juniata College, also in Pennsylvania.

Other possibilities to look into: Trinity University in Texas, Trinity College in CT.,
Goucher College in Maryland, Denison in Ohio,
the College of Wooster in Ohio, Knox in Illinois, the University of Puget Sound in Washington, the University of Denver.

If you don't mind a Catholic school, some other options would include: Fairfield in CT, Marist in NY, University of San Diego in Calif, Seattle U in Washington, Loyola College in Maryland.

Gettysburg is a GREAT suggestion, as are UMD and Indiana (get more info on class sizes in your area of interest if that is a concern). Villanova too. (I'm just here to echo!) Maybe University of Delaware, and Penn State is great for business.
