You have a good chance at these colleges but no sure thing. Your best shots will be at BC and NYU. Would suggest also applyig to Colgate and Holy Cross which are also top tier but get slightly less applications so a bit easier to get into. Both have strong alumni networks and strong presence on Wall Street.

Being a BC student, I could only comment on that, but your chances seem pretty good. Carroll is hard to get into, but if your SATI scores get higher, you may have a pretty good shot. Do good on macro and micro, and that will make your life much much easier. Good luck!
