    Unless you do abysmal this year, Furman should be a pretty safe bet for you. You're stats are pretty similar to mine, and I also was able to get a fair amount of merit aid here.

    Do your best this year, apply for Furman's merit scholarships, and see what happens! Also, let me know if you have any questions about the school/applications/etc.
