Jazzy Posted September 20, 2017 Share Posted September 20, 2017 Still learning about the college application process... I've been doing some reading online about merit scholarships. Is it true that grades/test scores above the 75th percentile for a particular school make the student LIKELY to earn merit scholarships at schools that offer merit money? Or is it still a long shot? I've found a number of schools that might be a good fit for my 11th grader that offer merit scholarships, but they are not guaranteed based on certain test scores and gpa. How would I know whether or not he has a good chance of earning these scholarships? Also, I have been thinking about things I might/might not do differently with younger children. If you were starting out with a freshman who is strong academically and has a variety of interests, and you want to help the student along a path that would end in the likely outcome of a college scholarship, what kind checklist do you have in mind in terms of things the student should have/do? I'm not looking for a particular path, just a general idea of what makes a student competitive for merit money. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
