4.0, 172 Looking for full ride

Postby coolgreen42 » Fri Dec 17, 2010 11:38 am

I was wondering if anyone could share some wisdom on where I might be able to get a full ride with my numbers and normal/good softs, great recs., straight from undergrad.

I want to be in New England, preferably in MA.

Thoughts?

It looks like you have a good shot at a full ride, or close to it, at Boston University.

New England is kind of odd, because you have Harvard and Yale there and then such a big drop to BU and BC, which are both fine law schools, but well below Harvard and Yale. With your numbers I'd think you would probably at least want to apply to Cornell, NYU, and Columbia. My thought would be that it isn't that far to New England from any of them and they all might give you substantial support with those numbers. Penn isn't that far either.

According to Cooley's tuition calculator...

https://portal.cooley.edu/schoolRating/ ... ulator.jsp

...your numbers would get you a full ride at Cooley. However, you'd apparently pay sticker price at every other school in the country.

Are you looking for full tuition? Cause you will probably get some of those even in the top 25. If your looking for room in board as well... good luck with that.

While I love jumping on the ol' Cooley hatewagon, it's a tuition calculator and doesn't calculate other schools scholarships, just their tuition.

That said, OP should go to H.

What college did you go to how? How did you get a 4.0? Does your school give A+s?

True, but it advertises as if it can. You can select other schools to see what you'd pay.

not really...it asks you to input the scholarship info for the other schools

I went to a top 25 liberal arts school that doesn't give A+. My exact GPA isn't 4.0, I did not get an A in one class. It is extremely close to 4.0.

BU gives full rides + housing stipends for those with crazy high numbers. PM dakatz - I think thats the deal he has.

protip: you cannot round up your GPA to 4.0
