    Do there exist highly selective engineering colleges where a student could double major in engineering and international relations and still graduate in four years?

    ^Try asking in a Search forum thread, rather than in a random question on a scholarship thread.

    namaste....your question doesn't belong in this forum. Make a new thread with your question. This is a thread about ASSURED MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS....it's not a thread about double majors and graduating in four years.



    For others reading this thread:

    Alabama's application for Fall 2013 is now LIVE. Bama began accepting apps around a week ago (which is about 2 weeks earlier than usual). So, if you're going to apply, do it now....it's fast and easy...no essays or LORs req'd. After you apply, you'll get a follow up email a few days later. Use the info from the email to set up your MyBama acct so you can apply for the scholarships. Although the scholarships are ASSURED for stats, you have to submit the scholarship app.

    m2ck - if the student is still going to be taking the ACT and SAT again in the fall, is it advisable to wait until the results come in before submitting an application? IOW if you don't want them to evaluate the application based on the current state of information?

    No, do NOT wait to apply. This is how it works....

    If a student were to apply with test scores that are for a lower scholarship, then the school will FIRST award that scholarship, BUT, when the student retests and does better, then the school awards the larger one. So, no harm in applying early.

    Frankly, it's always better to get your app in early, no matter what your stats are. Any later change in stats will get noted and appropriate scholarship changes as long as they meet the deadlines.

    And, since Bama's acceptance rate has dropped significantly (to the low 40s now), it's always best to apply early. those with borderline stats are more likely to get accepted if they apply early. I don't want to cause any fear...generally any student who qualifies for a good scholarship is going to get accepted.


    FYI....Seniors must test by the following in order to have THOSE scores count for ASSURED scholarships...

    SAT....November exam is the last accepted exam for scholarships
    ACT.....Octorber exam is the last accepted exam for scholarships

    So, take the Sept and/or Oct ACT....and/or take the Oct and/or Nov SAT.

    Ok, I'll probably get chewed out since there isn't an "automatic" full tuition for UT Dallas, but they do have "almost" automatic full tuition scholarships worth checking out:

    Are those ASSURED or competitive? It looks like the listed stats are for consideration, but maybe all get it if they have the stats??

    Correction to Oakland University in Michigan - the full ride scholarship is only available to Michigan residents. Confirmed by the Financial Aid office today:

    "The OU Presidential Award is available to Michigan residents only. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions does offer some out-of-state scholarships to entering freshmen students. For more information on those please view the freshmen scholarship flyer at: www.oakland.edu/scholarships."

    Updated comprehensive list sorted by state.

    I have also attempted to calculate the residual cost of attendance (COA) given the scholarship award. NOTE, however, that this was calculated based on each individual college’s published Cost of Attendance, and these estimates may vary in how they are calculated and what costs are included.

    There is a separate thread for cataloging schools like Cooper Union that give free tuition to all admitted students:

    http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/financial-aid-scholarships/1359504-tuition-free-colleges.html

    This thread is for scholarships of full tuition or greater magnitude with clearly defined test scores/grades criteria. Admission to Cooper Union is not based on defined test scores or grades.
