It's academic excellence scholarship time.

I'm having a tough time deciding where to go to college. They're all giving me the hook-up for academic excellence scholarships. The competitive scholarships haven't even been decided yet, and that's when I will probably finally decide.

Based solely on academic excellence / presidential scholarships:

Ole Miss wants to give me $5500 per year to attend.

Mississippi State wants to give me $20,000 over the course of 4 years, plus room and board expenses up to $5,000 a year. They are also considering me for their $50,000 scholarship, which only 20 people will receive.

Mississippi Gulf Coast CC will cover full tuition, room and board, meal plan, and transportation. If I join the band then they will end up paying me about $2k a year.

Southern Miss and Millsaps haven't given me a response yet, but I expect Southern to cover full tuition and board. Millsaps, being a private university, probably won't give me much.

Anyone else getting offered some righteous scholarships yet?

i just got in to Penn State. still waiting on Cornell, Duke, Rice, and U. of Illinois.

Penn State will give me $4,000 per year off. not bad, considering i also get in-state tuition.

RIT gives me $10,000 a year for the Presidential Scholarship (or something like that) plus I get another $2,000 off a year for being an Honors student.

That, coupled with the fact I live at home, means I'm only paying ~$9,000-$10,000 a year for a school that normally costs around $30,000. Since I'm graduating in 3 years instead of 4, by the time I'm done I will have under $30,000 in loans, which is less than some people take out for one year at RIT.

Congratulations man. Those are some pretty nice scholarships you've got offered there. I'd definitely take the full ride or $20k one if I were you.

I'll probably be getting a ton of grants because of my family's financial situation.

I got ****ed even for student loans because of my parents financial status.. They're not rich or poor.. just middle class. Did you know that the federal government expects parents to hand 6 grand a semester to their kids for college? That's ****ing ridiculous if you ask me.

Definitely, I think it would be a really cool career. I've wanted to fly my whole life.

I just really hope my grades are good enough so that I can get in, unfortunately I slacked off my first 2 years of Highschool and have just started to get my **** together

I just applied to Eau Claire and havnt heard back... I highly doubt i will get and financial aid with a step dad who is a computer dude and making a ton of money, and my mom is on tv (even though she hardly makes anything, but hey, still more money). Oh well, i have to go find a real job (im working on a farm) and start saving for college.

I get $9k/year (25% tuition) so long as I hold a 3.5 at my school. Tough stuff though.

just wanted to bump this up to share the fact that i was awarded the A.J. Drexel Scholarship (academic excellence) in the amount of $16,500 per year for Drexel University.

i am not really interested in attending Drexel, but i thought it was pretty exciting

Same here. Middle class get's ****ed the most. Not rich enough to afford college on our own. Not poor enough to get aid. So I have to take out a loan that will put me in debt for a while.
