My son is a rising senior in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He is looking at Denison for English or Film Studies. From all appearances, the school looks like a strong candidate. We hope to visit before the summer is out.

With the economic down turn, I am sure that colleges are finding it more difficult to hand out merit aide. How is Denison faring? While we are not economically disadvantaged, we can not afford Denison's full tuition. The ultimate decision may come down to a LAC with merit aide v. an in-State U.

I suspect that no one can tell me, with certainty, how much aide we might get. However, it would be nice to have an idea of what to expect. My S has a 4.0 W GPA and a 2030/2400 on the SAT. His EC's revolve around theater/improv comedy. How much aide (if any) could an accepted candidate, like my son, expect?
