So many people have told us to apply to Trinity. My son would like to become a Doctor and we hear Trinity has a great science department. My question is, does he even stand a chance to be invited to interview for a full tuition scholarship with a 33ACT score? We are trying to keep undergrad cost as low as possible.

Since he plans on going into some sort of science, there is another option: the Semmes Distinguished Scholar in Science scholarship, which is a full tuition scholarship with a research stipend.
This scholarship requires the student to major in one of the following:
Biology, Biochemistry, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Science, Geosciences, Mathematics, Neuroscience, or Physics and Astronomy
To be considered for this scholarship you must submit your application before January 1, and there is an additional application for this scholarship (There is not an additional application for the Tower Scholarship, everyone gets considered for that)
Finalists for the scholarship will be invited to the school to interview with some of the science faculty, and the scholarship is given to only 1 or 2 students each year.

Best of luck applying!
Trinity University is an outstanding university. We moved our son in early yesterday to attend The Plunge. Their CSI Building cannot be topped for sciences and research. I would say to apply for all scholarships. The have a very generous merit based system. It sounds like he will be a perfect fit at Trinity.
