College Offering Scholarships/Aid for 3.4 GPA/1030 SAT Student

springfield18springfield18 77 replies10 threads Junior Member
Hey everyone! I'm looking for stories or anecdotes of school, state or public, that provided aid for students who received a 3.4 unweighted and a 1030 SAT. Obviously, I'm not expecting to see ultra-competitive, prestigious schools, just some nice, respectable colleges that are perhaps under my radar. Thanks!

    Probably lots will offer some. What part of the country are you in? I know in the Midwest, many have automatic merit charts so you'd just have to check some out. For example, at my DD'19's school, a directional public, those stats would get $1000 merit and if out of state, 50% off the OOS tuition difference. At my alma mater, a small Midwest private, they would give $4000 for those stats ($18,000 tuition to start with). I think they're both nice & respectable :)

    Have you looked at some of the smaller publics in your area?

    That's a great point. I need to check the public school charts. Thanks for the reminder.

    University of New Mexico has the LUE (Lobo Undergraduate Exchange) Scholarship and the LUE PLUS.

    LUE requires a 2.8 Cumulative GPA OR 18 ACT (960 SAT)

    LUE gives OOS student 1.5X in-state tuition rates (approx value $12, 230/year)

    LUE PLUS requires a 3.0 Cumulative GPA OR 20 ACT (1030 SAT)

    LUE PLUS gives OOS students the in-state tuition rate ( approx value is $15,500/year)


    UNM's in-state tuition & fees = $8,863.00/year

    Student needs to apply to UNM no later than December 1. The application is simple & straight forward. No essays required.

    From your other threads it sounds like you're a high school sophomore who will need financial aid. Have you tried the ACT? If you can get your scores up you'll have a better chance of getting some aid.
