I believe I'm going to attend a school deemed New York Ivy, whilst I eat off my finest authentic Arkansas china.  MMMMMM.

If I don't get a full ride, I'll have to walk the rest of the way.

Another Texas Tech here. I think their scholarships are largely numbers-oriented (based on LSN review).

I think Public Ivy is legit...it has its own Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_Ivy

I received a full ride, plus $300 for books each semester at Texas Tech.  162/3.6.

I haven't done anything particularly special.  I would assume it's just from my numbers.

I received 10K per year from Tech...almost a full ride.  Very tempting, especially with my mediocre numbers.  Are you considering Tech KCGF?

To be honest, not really.  But with that much money, it's hard to say no.  I'm going to try to go up there in February sometime and check it out, just in case.

My #s are 164/3.69 and I've received:

Full-ride at Michigan State, requires maintaining a 3.0 GPA and a spot in King Scholars Program which requires maintaining a 3.5 GPA.

$25k/year at Ave Maria, requires maintaining a 3.0 GPA and they want me to come in to interview for a full-ride.

Dean's Scholarship at UofD Mercy, which is about 55-60% tuition, requires maintaining 3.0 GPA.


Does anyone know if any of these schools are likely to be running "scholarship scams" making it difficult to keep the scholarship over 3 years?  Thanks for any help.

165 (159, 172, 167) / 3.96

Full ride:

UALR (guaranteed for all three years)

U of Arkansas (top 50% for renewal)

University of Colorado (3.0 GPA)

Unless finances make it necessary (bad credit), I can't pick these over others I've been accepted to.
