Rank these schools for iBanking? (QUESTBRIDGE)

So I was selected as a finalist for a college admissions program called Questbridge. I doubt that anyone on WSO has heard of it because you are all mostly prep school bred, but it basically gives low income or first gen kids a leg up by letting them apply to top schools(45 partner schools) for free if  selected as a finalist. If they are selected for the match scholarship, they get four years of college for free (tuition, board, books even flights)

The only catch is that student have to attend the school that gives them this scholarship. Its legally binding. We could only pick 12 schools and we had to rank them in order of preference. For example, if number 1 gives you a scholarship (a match) then you have to go to the school you ranked number 1 even if number 7 and 8 gave you the scholarship as well. 

You choose the schools you want to rank before youre selected as a finalist and if youre chosen then you have one more chance to change how you ranked them. I want to do ib/pe/cs in the future so thats why Im posting this here. Please help me rank the schools I have chosen:

They are


Brown University,

Williams University,

Hamilton College

Colgate University

Colorado College,

Oberlin College,

Macalester College,

Denison University,


Bowdoin College and

Boston College

Such a cheat code that Questbridge. Wish I bothered applying when I was in HS

But Penn/Brown easily. Leagues above everything else here.

Penn>Brown>UVA>Williams>Boston>Colgate, no tangible difference between the rest imo

Agree 100%.

Would actually say UVA above everything else if youre looking for a better experience. UVA is the dream school. Awesome southern school/state school football and greek life vibe.
