Horatio Alger Scholarship

<p>Any one take part in this scholarship..just out of curiousity..and what were your stats!?</p>

<p>i did. my stats are top 20% of class. 1320 SAT. lots of ecs. did you partake?</p>

<p>I did as well. Top 7% and 1410 SAT. Five good ECs.</p>

<p>Yes I did...SAT's were pretty low compare to u guys! Lodss of EC's GPA of 3.92!so hopefully that will help my low SAT! DO any of you guys know the stats of previous winners..adn what they look for in candidate..nd they only notify you if you have been selected as a semi finalist right?</p>

<p>My friend who graduated last year had a GPA in the low 3's and decent SAT scores, but his essays were very well-written. They want to see that you are an Horatio Alger story in the making; they want to see that you have triumphed over adversity.</p>

<p>Yeaa?!! Well I thought my essays were pretty good! Im really hoping I get this scholarship..i was actually recommended 4 it!</p>

<p>I was going to apply, but I was too lazy to do all the stuff for it. Guess I'm no future Horatio Alger. :p</p>

<p>when do we find out about our status (semifinalist, finalist) in the program?</p>

<p>Hey, I also applied for that...... don't know when we find out though.
-cools875 (my stats are top 7%, 1270, SATII us history 730 and um.. other academic stuff too). But I'm pretry sure I did rather well on the essay. I thought I had quite a bit to write about.</p>
