Best merit for top students in the East coast
Son is a sophomore with big dreams. Trying to narrow down colleges to visit that are financially feasible other than the generous ivy schools. Which top schools give the best merit (no need based or on top of need) in the east coast? He is Hispanic, top 5% of his class/600, probably won't qualify for much financial aid but won't be able to afford a 40k price tag (after aid). Math related majors. We are in NJ. He will be willing to compete for selective scholarships/ honors college etc. Thank you for any help.48 replies
