We live in OH and dd wants to attend college where it's not so cold. She prefers a smaller college and would need generous merit aid to attend a private school. Any recommendations? I looked at the Down and Dirty List, but it seems some of that information is outdated. For example, I found Furman on that list, which looked like a great match for her but then read here that their merit aid is not what it used to be.
ETA: stats: She took the SAT for the first time as a freshman and scored 1460. SAT Spanish Subject Test - 800 She wants to increase her SAT score and is also hoping for National Merit. 4.0 GPA with 31 credits of DE and will be doing DE full time for junior/senior years. She should have excellent letters of recommendation and good leadership on her activity resume. I don't really know where that puts her competitively - will have to research and see how her future scores are.
I would love to keep the price to 20k max for tuition/room/board.
