Just wondering if anyone has had success with procuring scholarship money using fastweb/collegeaid/collegenet. Or are these sites useless?

I won an essay contest that I found on fastweb during undergrad. Got me $2500, a new laptop, a new set of tires for my car and a $500 gas card :lol:

/it was sponsored by a tire company

I went to undergrad basically for free because of fastweb. One scholly even gave me a free trip to DC to hang out with a bunch of famous people (Wayne Gretzky, Clarence Thomas, Kenny Rogers, etc.) It was a really great experience, plus they gave me 10k. The rest of the schollys I received were all smaller, but they added up. I am going to give it a shot for law school as well, although there aren't nearly as many opportunities for grad school schollys
