Please help us come up with a list of colleges to consider
My DD is a junior, 4.8 weighted gpa, #10 in class of 330, 32 on ACT (will retake), 2180 on SAT (is retaking in March), probably national merit based on PSAT score. She would like to be a teacher of spanish and/or latin. We have 5 children, won't qualify for financial aid with her, and really are looking for a college that will offer her a lot of merit aid. We live in Ohio and she doesn't want to have to travel too far. How do we go about finding schools that will be very generous with merit aid? I am at such a loss. DS is a high school senior but his college search was easy since he picked a very specific major that narrowed down the college choices.36 replies
