I'm really interested in applying to Trinity in the fall, but I'm worried about paying for school. I want to double major in Computer Science and Writing, Rhetoric, and Media.

Will begin a job at Hollister as of mid-April, will continue the job through the summer.
Many volunteer hours, even traveled to Burma on a budget to volunteer with a local children's aid/relief group.
I'm a blogger with over hundreds of thousands of followers. The blog has been on Teen Vogue's list of Top 100 Fashion Bloggers from around the globe. The blog is not only a creative outlet, but also a portfolio of sorts, since I want to be working as some sort of digital creative director/editor at some fashion or lifestyle related publication in the future. My website is partially self-coded, and all content is independently written and created.
Based on my profile, how much of a shot do I have for getting in, as well as receiving very generous scholarship/financial aid? In addition, what is the likelihood of a full scholarship? I still have a younger sister who isn't as academically inclined to consider, so I really want to put no financial burden on my parents. I am more than willing to work while in college if possible. I will also be applying to Trinity through the Questbridge program, but it is so competitive, I can't get my hopes up about getting in.
