Hellooooo i am new here and so shocked i've found a place where people actually want to talk about college! my friends are so annoyed hahahha...
basically i would just like some suggestions for colleges.. i need some more ideas...
-i'd prefer a smaller school.... but a good one
-hopefully in california
-environment doesn't really matter (urban or rural fine..)
-with good business program/int'l relations or business... economics.. something along those lines.. not anything like U Penn cuz that's too hard to get into
any ideas? here are my stats...
SAT: 1270 (680M, 590V) :-/
SAT II: writing : 710
math IC : 700
spanish : 750
GPA: overall 4.16 W
jr. year 4.42 W
rank: my school doesn't rank but i know i'm in the top 10% out of like 850
Lots of EC (ie... comm service, sports, awards, bla bla bla...)
schools like occidental..or UC davis? are those matches?
what are some other schools that could be matches with my stats???

Bethany, Try these schools:
Claremont McKenna (reach)
University of Redlands (safety/match)
University of San Diego (match)
University of the Pacific (safety)
Santa Clara University (match)
Pepperdine and USD are larger schools but have a small school feel so are worth considering.
If you're interested in the UC's, you might like UC Santa Cruz or UCSD because they have smaller colleges-within-colleges that can make them feel smaller. If you're instate, many of the UC's will be a match for you. Exceptions will be UCLA, UCB and UCSD which should all be considered reaches due to your SAT I scores. (However, a reach doesn't mean you can't get in!). However, if you're an out of state student, these three schools will be high reaches for you as will UCDavis and UCSB as it is very hard to get into one of the UC's as an out of state student.
I listed Occidental as a reach for you because they have become very selective in the past few years as applications rose. Their average SAT is now in the mid 1300's. However, they like geographic diversity so if you're applying from out of state, you may get a boost.
Hope this helps!

Betty, make up your mind. You said you wanted a small school, preferably in California and then you ask about Wisconsin-Madison!!! LOL
Well, let me just say that Madison is awesome, if you don't mind the cold. It is a great university, a great campus and an awesome town.
Here are schools I would look into. The list is similar to Carolyn's actrually, but since you mentioned Madison, I modified the list a little:
Michigan-Ann Arbor (I wasn't going to add it, but you did ask about Wisconsin. If you decide to apply to Michigan, apply in September...not later)
U of Pacific

My SAT score was a little higher than yours, but I got into the L&S Honors program at UW-Madison, so that's no problem for you - your GPA is probably higher than mine was.
