My son is really hoping to receive some good news in March/April for admission into GW. But, I don't know if we can afford it. Does GW offer sizable merit-based scholarships for applicants? I know some schools give like 5k/yr, and that's cute and all, but we really need some help (around 20k/yr)
We applied for need-based aid, but we make too much money to be realisitically considered for aid (this is not an opinion--other colleges have accepted him without a penny in FA).
Also, if you know, what is the avg. profile for a University Honors Program student? He applied for that program (happily, because he loves writing), and on my end, I know that it comes with a sizable scholarship! (yay)
