I want to major in engineering, so i am looking for a school with a strong program with a lot of research. I really liked johns hopkins so i will probably apply there early decision. I will take advice on what you think my chances are there. But mainly i am looking for advice on safety schools, preferably in the northeast. I thought lehigh or villanova? Here are my stats
SAT: 710m 750v
SAT II's: Math 2C 800 Chem 760 Writing 720 Math 1C 770
Rank: 4 of 184
GPA: 4.1 weighted
EC's include captain of cross country and track teams, all conference junior and senior years. Science olympiad state and district medals. History day states twice. raising over 1000 dollars for American Cancer Society by directing a 5K run. Piano for 9 years with plenty of awards. Student Council treasurer. A bunch of other things as well, a few community awards for winning essay contests and stuff like that. Honor society etc. etc.
I know my math sat I is a little low for an engineering major, but hopfully my SAT II's wil make up for it. Also i have gotten 100's in every math class i have taken since my sophmore year.
Also i took ap chem and european history last year, scored 5 and 4 respectively on the tests. This year i have 4 more ap's: bio, english, us history, and calculus. That exhausts what my school has to offer in that department.
Ill probably major in mechanical engineering
any advice is appreciated. thanks

Villanova is a safety for you. Lehigh is darn close to a safety but more likely a very strong match. I will defer to the engineering experts on the relative strength of their mechanical engineering programs.
Are you interested in running competitively in college? If so, there is the Div 1 v Div 3 issues. If not, forget I brought this up.
