I'm applying RD for fall of 2019. I'm not a candidate for financial aid, but since GW is a pricey school, money is a big factor. I feel like I don't have a chance but since this is my dream school, I wanted to see if I have a shot for merit money.

I've been involved in the English Honor Society for two years, was in two clubs for two years and on a sports team all four years. I've also been working jobs all throughout high school. If someone has an idea of my chances of getting in or getting in with money, please let me know!
Also, I'm applying as a journalism major for my first choice and did write a strong additional essay to submit for that. Business is listed as my second choice if you think that also plays a role.
