Hi, I'm a senior and I'm looking to apply to the following schools:
University of Richmond
College of the Holy Cross
University of Indiana (Bloomington)
I need help trimming down the list to 6 reaches 4 matches or 5 reaches and keep the 5 matches. I see myself at a liberal arts college and will major in economics and minor in biology or statistics, depending on the course interests. I know these schools aren't "business" focused, but many LACs are underrated for recruiting for Wall street. I'm a URM and fairly decent grades (would range from the 25-50% percentiles for stats of the reach schools) and 75%+ percentiles for stats for the matches.
I read on another thread that Vassar and Carleton doen't do well because the students are "save the world" types, even though they are academically ranked higher than other schools. There were many mentions of NESCAC and Patriot league schools, so that accounts for Colgate, Lehigh, Lafayette. But what about Barnard College and Smith College? I'm applying ED to Barnard and EDII to Colgate, but if Barnard isn't a good idea, I'm applying ED to Colgate! Also can anyone confirm the statements about Carleton and Vassar?
PS I know Williams and Amherst are amazing but I don't have the stats.
