You are above both medians everywhere below Penn/UVA.

You can expect to get a solid scholarship from Michigan (45-65K range over 3 years), and full rides not too far below that. Get the GPA up into the high 3.8s and things get even better, as you would then be above the GPA median for Penn and Virginia.

Unfortunately you won't get much if anything from CCN. HYS only do need-based aid.

All estimates based on the assumption that you are a white dude who was closer to Rudy than Tebow.

Above post is credited, but keep in mind MVP is unpredictable, both in terms of acceptances and money. While I would be very surprised if you didn't get $$ from at least one of MVP, you really shouldn't view MVP as a lock (with or w/o money). You should apply at the very least from CCN to the lower half of the T14 (and Vandy if you want to work in the south, UT if you want TX, UCLA/USC if you want california). I wouldn't apply any further down than that, but that's me.

Also credited. If you aren't in Virginia or applying through binding early decision, then forget about it. As Richie noted, Penn and Michigan are unpredictable. They tend to waitlist applicants who haven't convinced them of a desire to attend. To head this off, you need to write optional essays for these schools.

Looks like Tebow is starting to explore other career plans. Is the NFL solid WE?

Depending on what type of scholly you want I would seriously consider Duke as they have been shelling out money the past cycle.

Out of non t14s, I would need to know your career intentions and regional preference. Although you should most definitely be sending an app to Vandy.

Apply to MVPDCG (N if work experience) and Vandy for sure. Also add some strong T30s in the regions of your preference (eg Fordham, BC/BU, etc.)

For safety schools, I'd say anything below MVP is a pretty safe bet with those numbers.

If money is a [SERIOUS] issue, ED BU or NW.

Full ride, and I bet you'll get it.
