Merit Scholarships as a rising Sophomore
Just for context, I am a rising sophomore at Tulane University. When I was originally accepted into the school last year, my statistics were much lower than the average applicant and therefore I received nothing in merit scholarships from the school. However, in my first year at Tulane, I earned a 4.0 and was named to the Dean's List. After my recent performance, I was hoping to apply for merit-based aid as a sophomore not only because of my academic achievements, but primarily because it would be incredibly helpful to my family financially. As I perused the university's website hoping to find information regarding applying for aid as a current student, I realized I couldn't find any. I am hoping that someone could answer some questions about petitioning the school for merit aid as a sophomore, namely if this is even a possibility. I know it may be slightly unconventional, but if someone could shed some light on the process or share their own experience with this issue it would be amazing. Thanks!3 replies
