How is RPI for giving merit money? My son was a Rensselaer Medalist so was offered that scholarship (he ended up at WPI), but my daughter hadn't even considered RPI until this (senior) year, so the Medal had already gone to somebody else in her school. She really liked RPI on her visit and wants to major in Arch. She has good stats (CR SAT a little low @ 670 but 780 M and has only had one A- throughout all of HS) and good extracurricular activities. How generous are they with Merit $$ to non-medalists?
