I'm a transfer student getting read to to apply to USC, but I was wondering if anybody here knew how they base their scholarships ? is it based on need/efc ? or GPA ? or sat/act scores ?.
I have a pretty low EFC (in the mid 3k) and have a 3.935 GPA in college so far (with a loaded schedule) and a 3.8ish GPA in high school. I graduated HS with honors, but my ACT score in high school was not very good (in the 50th and then 75th percentile), will this ACT score affect my chances at a scholarship ? or is it all need and GPA-based ?
I'm assuming since ACT scores don't factor into admissions for transfer students, they shouldn't matter for scholarships either, is this reasoning right ? or am I pretty much screwed ?
