Hello! I will soon become a senior and begin the college application process.
I see how competitive getting scholarships is and am anxious about getting enough financial aid. I am grateful that I have everything I need on a daily basis, but there is no money for college and I don't want to drown in loan debt.
Here are the schools I wish to apply to:
University of South Carolina
University of Maryland
University of Georgia
George Mason University
George Washington University
I hope to major in international business and work in sustainability/ethics in the business world.
Here are some facts about me:
-I am a rising senior from South Carolina
-first-generation American, my parents are Colombian, I speak Spanish fluently
- 4.994/5 gpa
-part of an early college program (I will have about 36 college credits done by the end of high school) at the local community college, plus I am part of the college's Honors Program, Phi Theta Kappa, and I have on their Dean's list for 4 consecutive semesters
-President of the Academic Team
-Founder and Leader of high school's recycling initiative, I was awarded a grant to do this
-Red Cross Club member
-National Honors Society
-regular volunteer at local arts center
-2 internships at the local Democratic party
-required to do 50 service hours per year (though I will end up with much more than that)
-art student and soon-to-be teacher's assistant in art class
-will be attending Girls State program for American Legion this summer
Please give me some feedback in how good scholarships/financial aid offers will be for me.
Thank you so much!
