Berry College - scholarships

My DD is over the moon that she has been accepted to Berry College in Georgia. She has been awarded a merit scholarship of $18k a year, plus a $4K Grant. With her Hope and TEG (Georgia Scholarship programs), this is getting it close to what state schools would cost ... but not quite.

She has the option to apply for four scholarships at Berry: Gate of Opportunity, Bonner, Leadership and Lettie Pate Whitehead.

Gate is close to a full ride, but it is a work scholarship. You have to work year round to pay it back. Her mentor is strongly advising her to not apply for Gate—she is a STEM pre-dental/chemistry major, and he is concerned she will jeopardize her chance at dental school. It’s very competitive, and she might not have a chance anyway.

Does anyone know what the chances are and usual amounts of scholarships for Bonner or Lettie Pate Whitehead?

Moderators, please feel free to move this to where it will get more eyes on it if I’ve posted it in the wrong place. I am fairly new to posting.
