Merit money

silverpurplesilverpurple 86 replies27 threadsRegistered User Junior Member
My daughter will be applying to Bryn Mawr. I see on their webpage that they award merit money. We are from NY, 1540, 3.9 unweighted average, top 5-10% of her class. Would anyone be willing to share their stats and merit amount? Without merit money, it is not likely she would attend even if accepted.

    I recieved 25k, I had a 32 ACT and 3.95 GPA. However, I think I recieved the award because of my essays and extracurriculars

    @silverpurple I received $12k with a 3.7 uw, 3.85ish w and 34 act, and my extracurriculars were pretty decent. Honestly, they give them to the people who they want to study here, and that doesn't always mean the applicants with the highest stats

    If helpful (it's a few years ago), my D17 received $30k in merit (4.0 uw, 1580 SAT). Strong classics student, mock trial, quirky EC & essay topic (beekeeping).
