College suggestions with a 4.2 gpa?
I know I'm probably not at the ivy league level, but I want to find a reasonably prestigious school in the northeast when I apply next fall.
High school- public, top 100 in the US.
Top quartile, no class rankings
4.2 weighted gpa, 3.83 uw
Junior: physics, bio, us history, Calc AB
Senior: psychology, environmental science, Calc bc, literature, government
UC Berkeley internship- 6 hours a week during the school year, 30 during summer
Soccer-freshman junior & senior (knee injury soph)
Entered intel isef and sts & seimens science competitions- 2nd place in isef
Volunteering- nursing home, 4 hours a week soph-senior, 400 hours total
Band: freshman and sophomore year
Founder and president: club connect (works to connect the generations with a letter writing club from high schoolers to nursing home residents)
Member of my towns youth involvement committee- freshman-senior
Secretary of the Leo club- junior- senior (member freshman and sophomore)
Piano- certificate of merit level 6 completed junior year, 5 sophomore, 4 freshman (will finish 7 senior in march)
Teaching piano- freshman through senior, two hours per week.
Before ninth- two weeks volunteering in costa rica
Before tenth- three weeks johns Hopkins cty genetics course
Before eleventh- precalc at community college, Berkeley internship, one week outward bound
Before twelfth- 6 week science camp (I'm not sure which one yet, still waiting on acceptances)
So yeah I'm currently procrastinating my physics homework but I need some opinions for my English class, thanks!

Hey, if your GPA wasn't so low, I'd suggest MIT or harvard? Seeing all your volunteer work and such, you seem like an over achiever so I'd suggest Cornell. Seeing the math, I'd suggest a nice Business school. Walton in Northwestern University in Illinois isn't all that bad. And Business is starting to pick up and be a GREAT field again.
