My s was admitted for the class of 2015 but did not get the Harvey Mudd merit scholarship. Although disappointed, he is still interested in HM but I wonder if not having the scholarship will place him at a competitive disadvanage for internships, jobs, or other awards. He is a national merit scholar, 2360 SAT (one time 800M, 790V, 770W), goes to a magnet science and tech school described as the best in the US by U.S. News, has 7 APs (all 5's), 3 post APs (linear algebra, multivariable, intro to engineering), an unweighted 4.0, leadership positions in marching band, german honor society, national german award, awards for music, active in school community, church and community service, etc.
Please respond as he must make a decision by May 1. I am also curious as to who did get these awards. Thanks!
