Schools known for good merit aid

    This is a good list to start but one must still confirm with each school as to the accuracy as schools do change their policies. For instance, this list shows Northeastern offers $30,000 to NMF but now they offer "up to" $30,000. It is not automatic, just as USC is not automatic. At NU, NMF used to get full tuition, then $30,000 guaranteed and now "up to." Just be aware when you apply.

    My son is interested in OU, but missed NMSF cutoff by one point (216 in a 217 state). Do you happen to know if they do anything for commended scholars (209+)

    OU gives lots of money. I would think commended would get a significant amount. Look also at Baylor - they give lots of aid.

    Go here to get an estimate of the money offered at OU

    Personal experience: Trinity University in San Antonio and Kalamazoo College both offered generous merit aid.

    One of the nice things about Trinity is their transparency. They publish their merit aid guidelines (academic record/test scores) on line so you can determine ahead of time how much merit aid you might qualify for. Also, they offer something on the order of 20 full-tuition scholarships for an incoming class of around 600 freshman.
