What do you want to go into? What state are you in?

You should have a good chance at most schools, but your lack of commitment might hurt you (but your scores should most likely prevail). Where do you want to go? I think USC is a perfect match- I might be a little bias though

your stats would be enough to earn you consideration, at least, at any school. do you want to stay in california? be in a city or a rural area? do you want an lac or a research university? there's not enough information here on which to help you base a list.

Apply to UCLA, Cal (UCB), UCSD, Caltech, Stanford, Pomona (if you like smaller schools)..
and if you want to move from California..
think about schools like Washington U in St Louis or Cornell etc..

i'm not too sure... I was looking into Harvey Mudd and Caltech, the UCs and I nurse a small childish hope for the Ivies. I want to go to a larger University though if I could get into Caltech or Harvey Mudd, that'd be the exception. Thanks! more input please!
