My daughter would REALLY like to apply EA to Furman’s Studio Art Program for Fall 2021. She has been invited out and I think she has a pretty good chance of being accepted. However, we are going to need merit aid and/or a scholarship to make that happen.
My question: If Furman is “testing optional,” how is Merit based aid and/or scholarships awarded? It looks like only 40%-49% of applicants submit SAT scores, so we are trying to decide if she should submit her scores or not.
And last question- Does the dept or major you are seeking have any effect on the offer a student receives?
