Colleges I'm Considering at the Moment (Do I Have a Chance?):
Vassar
Bryn Mawr
Smith
Barnard
American
George Washington
Amherst
William and Mary
UVA
Colgate
Bard
Swarthmore
The Claremonts
Tulane
What I'm looking for in a college: As little drinking and Greek life as possible, small classes with profs teaching, good music program but not crazy good (I'm not a prodigy), definitely challenging, nice dorms and food of course, kids aren't too stuck up or too into brand names.
Thanks a lot!

Wesleyan (reach), Bowdoin (reach), Bates and Colby (match/reach), Ct. College (match/safety), and Sarah Lawrence (safety) would be good.
