What are my chances of getting in, and getting financial aid?
I want to go to a smallish liberal arts college, and Bryn Mawr is appealing because of it's proximity to Philadelphia and I'd like to go to a womens college. From what I've read online I think I stand a chance of getting in, but what are the chances of me getting in with some financial aid from the school?
My parents make 120,000 a year so I'm not eligible for need-based aid. But, they're only going to help a little with college cost and I don't want to be neck deep in debt when I get out. So question is, with the following stats, do I stand a chance of getting in and do you think I would get any form of aid from the school?
2 AP classes
2 honors classes
National Honor Society
Girl Scout for 12 years (various service projects; silver & bronze awards earned)
Athlete: National champ; 2 national records; jr. world team; competed abroad at world champs 2x (ps it's not a collegiate sport so I can't be recruited)
I write a strong essay.
