Request Additional Merit Scholarship
I am currently a senior in high school and I'm really set on going to Rowan University. For merit scholarships they consider both GPA and SAT Scores (like most schools). My GPA is really high (103) but my SAT scores were lower (1930).
I've heard from many people that if a student submits a letter to the school requesting more merit money, there's a chance the school might consider giving more money. I know it might not work but I figured it was definitely worth a try.
So my questions are has anyone done this and succeeded? If so, what did you write in your letter and how did you format it? If you could help me out I would be eternally grateful. Thank you so much!
