Would anyone share what sort of merit money you were offered and what your stats were?
My son had 1400 SAT, top 5% of class; several AP classes; cross country and track team captain; orchestra, NHS, and a few more ECs. He was accepted Early Decision and offered $25K in merit money.
My most recent DD to go to Muhlenberg had a weighted GPA of 3.7, 1360 on her SATs, lots of theater and Speech and Debate ECs, is an EMT and volunteered in our town. She receives $20k plus some extra talent money.
Does the merit money come in the acceptance letter?
Yes, ours did.
Good Morning! My DD was awarded Presidential Scholarship ($20000), Dana Scholar ($5000) and Theatre Talent ($3500). She has an unweighted 4.0, 30 ACT, 1 AP and the rest are honors. Extensive theatre extracurriculars. Regular decision. She is soooooo excited!
DD was accepted this week:
Dance, dance, dance plus alpine skiing, marching band, etc.
We visited twice and she hit it off well with interviewer.
Awarded presidential $25k
Muhlenberg scholar $5
Plus a small need-based grant and federal loans.
I got 35k per year, no need based aid.
That is fantastic, @camiruth !!! Do you think you will go?
Thank you so much! To be completely honest, I don’t think I will be attending Muhlenberg just because I have been accepted into some other schools that I prefer (WashU, Kenyon and Northwestern) but I really love Muhlenberg and am not eliminating it completely as an option yet
