    U of O is a lot larger than 10k! My son had a similar wish list for fit and U of O was wayyyyyy too large for him.

    University of Vermont does offer decent out of state scholarships so while it is over 50k it is possible to get that down quite a bit. Top OOS scholarship is currently 18k a year and she would be a strong candidate for the top award if she maintains her stats I would think.

    Ithaca college could fit the bill nicely but is a bit less generous in merit monies compared to total costs but could be in the low 40's.

    I would NEVER allow my kids to go to Penn State. No way, no how.

    Oh, I know U of O is more than 10K, as does she, but it has everything else she wants, and if she can't go there, she wants under 10K.

    And how are her stats?
    You can see how CC loves to throw out names. But you don't want to spin your wheels.

    Her stats? Well, if you mean grades and things, She has a weighted GPA of about 4.5..... top 8% of her class.... National Honor Society, yada yada yada.
