Relative and her college parted ways. She needs a new college. Help?

It's a really raw deal, but the point is that she needs to find a new college. She was going to a top-tier school (Ivy League). I'm helping her navigate this next challenge - but where do we start? What are good resources or people to talk to that could help us create a list of attractive and viable colleges? Or, if you have actual college suggestions, that's great too. Specifics inside.

The reason I say it's a raw deal is because essentially she is being kicked out for depression. And yes, we're fighting it. Without going into the specifics too much, she had fine grades (B average) and was not kicked out for disciplinary reasons. But that said, if this expulsion holds up, it will look like she got kicked out of school. A great next school would be a place that:
-Is academically on par, or at least somewhat close, to the last school
-Accepts students who have already completed some college
-Would be open to hearing her complicated, but ultimately sympathetic, story (we just fear that blindly sending out applications to big, top-tier universities would be a recipe for failure given how this looks on paper)
We're in need of college suggestions, or suggestions for people to talk to or websites/books that might guide us. The advisers at her previous college are not an option, because screw them.
