How competitive are the merit scholarships at USC? Do you think I'd be eligible for any?
-National Merit Semifinalist at the moment, should go on to be finalist (so I know I'd be eligible for that scholarship)
-should have 34+ ACT when I apply
-class president, beta club president, valedictorian (really really small school though)
-should have 200+ hours of community service
-1st place, state math/science competition for two years in a row (biology)
-also from an underrepresented state I think (MS)
