My daughter applied EA to Elon. We won't qualify for FA, so she'll need to apply for merit scholarships. We were looking at the profile for last year's students, and the GPAs seem very high! The Presidential Scholarship average GPA was 4.7 and the Honors (Fellows) Program average was 5.0. My daughter is within the range for the ACT score (31) but not close to the GPA. Does anyone know what conversion tool Elon uses when calculating GPAs? (It isn't possible for students at our school to have a 5.0 GPA, and even my older daughter who graduated with straight As and 11 AP classes did not have a 4.7 GPA.)
Anyone have experience or thoughts about these programs? Thanks!
