I am applying, for Fall 2013, to transfer to University from a California Community College. I've been spending a lot of time over the last few months researching schools that I would like to attend. However, there are just SO many schools that I cannot possibly look into all of them. I would just like some suggestions into schools I may not have thought of... A little about me: 4.0 GPA, member of an honors society, decent EC's (chess club, full time athlete...), nontraditional student (24 years old), married, math major (pure), have very good letters of recommendation, have not taken SAT/ACT. Math classes I'll have taken before transferring: College Alg. Trig Intro Stats Calc 1 Honors Calc 2 (at my CC, so not as rigorous... some proofs) Honors Linear Algebra (from cross enrollment at a University- proof based) Honors Multivariable Calc (from cross enrollment at a University- proof based) Honors Vector Calc (from cross enrollment at a University- proof based) Honors Diff Eq (also at my CC) Discrete Math I've already found some schools that I'm very interested in, namely: UC Berkeley UCLA (though I don't really want to live in LA) UCSD U Texas: Austin Cornell UM: Ann Arbor FAU Wilkes (honors) College Some other schools that I also like: UC Davis U Washington UW: Madison Brown U Georgia Some of the things that were important factors in my decision were honors upper division courses, honors programs, ability to take grad classes as undergrad, support for summer research, support of independent study/self-directed study, and college/class sizes. I prefer small towns/schools/classes (I know my choices don't always reflect this, but it's not easy to find all of the small town Universities!). Financial aid is also very important for me. I would just like some suggestions of lesser known schools which I should consider which may be a better fit than what I have found so far. Thank you for any advice/suggestions.
