Scholarship chances

<p>i have recently been accepted into the business honors program. I am a out of state and submitted my scholarship app on Jan 7 (missing the Dec 1 priority deadline). I was wondering what scholarships I would miss out on by missing the Dec 1 deadline and being an out of state student. The way I can afford the costs is by getting a good scholarship or tuition waiver. What are my chances? Any thoughts?</p>

<p>You have no chance. Sorry.</p>

<p>You haven't even given any statistics, but even if they were amazing, since you missed the deadline, you would get no money. There are very few scholarships to begin with and the only way you could get one is if no one who applied before the deadline met the qualifications and you did.</p>

<p>boyniceasdf, wat r ur stats?</p>

<p>my stats are 1570/1600 or 2240/2400 sat, 3.95gpa, 27/520 class rank, three different high schools, great extracurriculars</p>

<p>Seriously, I was considering filling out the scholarship application in the week prior to December 1st...and found that all, except maybe one or two, were completely biased towards Texans.</p>

<p>It was really ridiculous. You had to live in so and so district or attend whatever Texas high school to even qualify for the scholarship. What the?!</p>

<p>UT is so stingy with money anyways...</p>

<p>There are a lot of scholarships not listed on the site...</p>

<p>the $10k Texas Exes scholarships are open to all.
P2H and LAH applicants are considered for the Dedman scholarships, which are $13k a year.</p>

<p>Most colleges and some majors also have frosh scholarships. But you had to use the FSA to apply.</p>

<p>ya if you applied by december first they forwarded your scholarship app to your school of choice and you were eligible for scholarships from that. for example i have a friend who will get 9k a year from the engineering school.
but i don't know how they treat scholarship apps submitted after december first...
but it seems highly unlikely.
look for other scholarships...</p>

<p>Not necessarily true. I know an out of state student who received a renewable $1000 scholarship from Texas (which in Texas qualifies you for in state tuition so a savings of $80,000 total over 4 years)) and didn't even fill out the scholarship application. Oddly enough, he was notified of the scholarship in June. However, to be safe I would recommend applying by the scholarship deadline.</p>

<p>You can still receive scholarships if you applied after that deadline. It probably makes it a little harder, as that was a priority deadline, but it was not the final deadline.</p>

<p>A good thing to keep in mind is that a lot of students get out-of-state tuition waivers for various reasons. If you are a national merit finalist, you get that waived plus a scholarship. Scholarships from different departments can also get you waivers for that part of tuition.</p>

<p>While Texas can be rather stingy with scholarship money, I would definitely not rule out the possibility that you could get money.</p>

<p>Darkpenguin, that would be because the student was a National Merit/Hispanic/Achievement finalist.</p>

<p>And I believe the only OOS waivers not connected with the scholarship application are National Merit waivers.</p>

<p>National Merit/Hispanic/Achievement awards don't require you to use the freshman scholarship application. Almost all others do.</p>
