I'm assuming they'll give me a full ride. Drake probably will too. I'll need to take out all the aid I can get to pay for CoL and supplement my family, so I need the scholly.
Unfortunately, Iowa won't give a rat's ass about scholarships from Drake and MSU, even if they are full rides. Drake is a Tier 3 school, and Michigan State has only recently broken into second tier. It would need to be a peer school. Try sending apps to Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana-Bloomington, getting scholarships from them would be much better leverage.

I applied mid October so hopefully I'll be one of the first few IA residents they see.
This is what I meant, Opie, too late to sign up. Sorry that I wasn't more clear.
You'd have 4 weeks to study. It might be worth it just for scholarship money. If you don't do better, it's very unlikely to hurt you.
