I am a current junior at a private rigorus high school in suburban Pennsylvania. Loyola is my top school, but I am very worried about the cost of attendance, and was wondering what chance I have of getting merit money there. I was also wondering if merit money and need based aid stack there? All and any information is appreciated!

I am also beginning my own medicine club at school next year for anyone interested in going into that field.

Please let me know your thoughts and if there are any other schools that would be matches for me that are worth looking in to! Thanks!
