My PSAT was about 216 or something, so not high enough to be a National Merit Finalist or Semi-finalist. (I'm really kicking myself now that I know how important that was in terms of securing money...)
I don't qualify for financial aid.
I got a 2400 (one sitting) in June, which I think is pretty good. Does anyone know of ways that I can get some merit-aid off this? Maybe some privately run academic scholarships?
I know colleges often give money for this kind of thing. Does anyone have suggestions of good colleges to look?
