Most of my high school career I've been relying primarily on standardized test scores to get me to college and hopefully pay most of the way. While I maintain a somewhat decent GPA, my laziness really shows in where I place in my class (Top 13-14%). I'm planning on attending a public college in Texas (Either UT or A&M), and I'm wondering roughly how much scholarship money a high SAT score (~2350-2400), combined with a decent GPA and EC's could secure me at one of those schools. Thanks in advance.
Also, do schools typically offer scholarship money outside of their official scholarship programs if they really want a student?
