My dream school is University of Colorado at Boulder! My dad is putting up $25,000 for school which is SO sick and I'm so stoked on that. The only problem is that it'll cost me $40,000 to go to school there.. putting me in a $15,000 hole. I really don't want student loans so I'm wondering how realistic a $15,000 scholarship is? I'm a pretty good student in Honors/Accelerated classes and AP courses with a 89.58 average. I've played soccer for 3 years on the school team(4th will be next year) and I am in the Honor Society. I also take a ceramics class to get art on my transcript. Just got a 1210 on my 2-part SAT and a 27 on the ACT.
Overall i think that's a pretty banger application i have going but is that good enough for a $15,000 scholarship or something close? I'm really looking for a comparison of what other NS'ers have received in scholarship money along with their grades.
Anything to boost my chances or give me a bit of hope to get a sweet scholarship would be appreciated! Thanks NSG
