How did i get $18,000 a year Scholarship for college?
    #3932757 - 03/17/05 11:07 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

hey. probaly going to hartford university (although i still have 1 application out. i went there once and liked it so im gonna check it out again before commiting anywhere. its about on par with hartford or slightly better. So i will check the school again and how much $ giving me and whatnot)

anyways my GPA was a 2.1 And i got 1240 on my SATs. The GPA is horrendus. i was 52/60 in my class ranking lol. And the SAT is slightly above average. Only thing i had going for me is i am an Eagle Scout and played football in High school and was a captain (but im not playing in college and didnt even send a tape)

And anyways they are giving me $18,000 a year and the college only costs $22,000 a year. so basically for free. im like wtf but in a good way. Also u got to factor in the dorm room and food which adds like $8,000 onto the total. But still it would cost me $8,000 for food and shit like that anyways.

so its sweet. and i have no idea how it happened. do any of u go there and know or what?

damn, I got like the same gpa, 1380 on my sat. I haven't even applied anywhere, I figured my GPA killed my chances.


--------------------
And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk ...four times already this year and I used to be over by the window and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and its not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire.

Are you confusing financial aid with a scholarship?

haha. I go to Cornell University in Ithaca, NY and tuition for me is a little over $40,000 plus room, board, books, lab fee, etc. Had a 4.3 in high school and got a 1410 on my SATs... ended up with $19,000 in scholorship/loans per year.

Its a fixed rate her, i.e. all universities charge the same fee, currently £3145 ($4,459.48) - it fluctuates with inflation.

did you fill out a fasfa or whatever it's called? if your parents income is really low a lot of universities will award scholarships/grants to make it affordable to your family.

i learned this the hard way this year. filed fafsa with my mom who makes $115k per year and got no finincial aid or government grants, just my 2k scholarship, even though i scored the same on my SAT's as you and had a 3.4 GPA.  next year though, i'm filing with my dad, who's on unemployment :lol:

the kid that lives next to me did that and got tuition reduced from 23k per year to 6k.
