    I did a College Board search for you based on your stats and came up with this list of Midwestern colleges, all of which accept half or more of their students with stats like yours. Please keep in mind that this means that, at some of these colleges, you'd be considered an outstanding applicant (so they're safety schools), while at others, like Indiana University or the University of Wisconsin-Madison, you'd be considered acceptable but not a priority (so they're reach schools). The vast majority, however, are "match" schools for you. You can visit the college profiles at CollegeBoard.com to see exactly where you match up for them.

    Of course, please remember that some state universities expect higher GPAs from out-of-state applicants, and don't forget all of the other factors involved. :) But hopefully, if your whole application will be as strong as you expect, all of these would be within reach.

    You need to pick a major first and then look for schools with a good program for what you want to do in the area you want to be in.
