Hi. First post …
I am the parent. Good family income, far from a Wall Street Titan’s income. We couldn’t afford full tuition at Rose but could handle a typical state school.
My son is a Junior. He has 4+ GPA. All A’s so far, with a bunch of APs, at a competitive HS. Scored a 36 on the ACT and 1500 (out of 1520) on PSAT. Has not taken the SAT yet. “Good overall” student … in robotics, math/ science clubs, music, etc.
He’s also interested in Engineering. Other schools of interest that he’s seen: MIT, Princeton, Yale … Haven’t visited yet but seem promising Harvey-Mudd, Stanford, Notre Dame.
We really liked Rose (tops what we’ve seen so far).
Assuming he keeps up his grades, what could he expect from Rose regarding merit? Is a full (or mostly) ride realistic? (White middle class kid).
