Oklahoma State's "Scholar day"

<p>I got an invite to attend OSU's "Scholar Day", where they talk about scholarships and their Honors College. This is the 2nd time they've solicited me with something other than the usual "blah blah blah, come here, we own etc...". The first time they said I could qualify for a ton of financial aid.</p>

<p>My traget school are texas and Baylor, but if given a ton of financial aid and accepted to an Honors College Program, I'd seriousaly consider a school like OSU.</p>

<p>My abbreviated stats:
94.5 GPA (15-76 in class, 2nd decile)
2030 SAT (630 M 660 CR 740 W)
Great EC's</p>

<p>Should I go and expect to get some serious scholarship money from OSU, or would I likely not get any more FA from them than I would my match/reach schools like Texas and baylor?</p>

<p>You should absolutely go check out OSU. It's a great school from what I've heard. If they have more scholarship offers for you, it may be the best school for you. Good luck visiting colleges.</p>

<p>Another "definitely go" and check out OSU and their honors program.</p>

<p>Yeah, I think it's definitely worth going. Merit aid is pretty unpredictable, and you might well end up with a lot more from OSU than Texas and Baylor.</p>

<p>OSU says to expect $11,000 in tuition for nonresidents, and a total of 23,000 after fees. Does any nonoutstanding merit aid ever cover fees, or is it all tuition only?</p>

<p>I live in OK and I can say that OSU is not a very good school. It doesn't even come close to comparing to Baylor / Texas but is very loose with scholarships. They'd probably give you a full-ride to near full-ride if you wanted but a degree from OSU and a degree from Texas is not comparable. If you really need the scholarships, check out OU. Nearly as loose with scholarship money as OSU and a much better school, especially if you plan on doing medicine or law (OSU has neither a med or law school).</p>
