Basically I need schools where I will hopefully get really good merit scholarship! My dad makes a decent middle class salary but has a lot of investments and other assets which pretty much disqualify us from financial aid (because theoretically we could just sell them but it's not that simple obviously)... I'm a pretty average student I think but my school does not disclose our stats (gpa, rank, etc). All I know is that I am in the second decile (top 20% of my class) and my ACT is a 29 and my SAT is 1260 but I haven't gotten my most recent scores back yet so hopefully it increases. My school has 5 levels of classes (in order from lowest to highest) CP, CP1, H, H1, AP and I was in all H and then moved up to almost all H1 by senior year. I have taken the most AP classes that my school will let my take (3 - chem, stats, and calc) based on prereqs and other weird policies involving required study periods based on the number of APs. I have gotten all As, A-s, and 4 B+s over 24 classes in 3 years. I live in Massachusetts if that helps with area and I don't mind going far but maybe not passed the Mississippi. PLEASE HELP WITH WHERE I'M REALLY QUALIFIED FOR MERIT SCHOLARSHIP!!!!!122 replies
