Hey, I think I saw an extensive thread about this before, not sure what happened to it... but I was wondering which schools provide the most merit based aid that are still up there in terms of education quality. Like I remember reading that Tulane gives a lot, but what are the other similar caliber schools that give a lot.
I'm one of the top kids in my class, the usual tons of ECs, tri-sport Varsity athlete with all-conference award, good academic awards, almost strait As in challenging classes, etc.
The thing is, I am contemplating attending a sub-Ivy school, and am thinking about finding a school that will pay a lot of the tuition for me. I'm white middle class male, so I don't expect much need based (FAFSA calculator said like 20k), but I would love to get merit based aid.
