Massachusetts in state:
Umass Amherst accepted into Biomedical Engineering program, no honors collage no merit .... so disappointed in Umass Amherst, what's up with that we were really hoping for this one but without merit or honors collage it's not worth it. Could it be that DD didn't send her SAT score just ACT score? She got a 1450 SAT score. We are just shocked because we were counting on this for affordability.
Do they ever reconsider?
Any advice appreciated.
Stats: 34 ACT, 3rd in class (of 250), 3.95 uw GPA 4.65 w, 8 AP classes, very involved in music program, captain of Tennis varsity team, etc.
WPI Presidential Scholarship $31,000 for each academic year of your undergraduate program. Umass Dartmouth accepted and 15 k a year merit. DD accepted into Chemical / Biomedical Engineering and Northeastern scholarships 27 k a year merit and Honors collage. All Still expensive for us though she only qualifies for 5500 loan ... :-(
