Minority Scholarships For High School Students

Terrence Said:

How likely am I to get a scholarship?

We Answered:

As long as you keep your grades up and mention some of these things in your application you should receive one! Also make sure that you do an alternate search for scholarships too! The schools can only offer so much, so it doesn't hurt for you to do a little research too!
Try some of these websites:

Jeffery Said:

Are there any scholarships or grants out there for the average middle class student?

We Answered:

First of all. If your parents are divorced, on the fafsa, you should NOT be reporting both of your parents income. You should be reporting the "set" of parents you lived with the most recently. It sounds like is this mom. And if mom is married, her husbands income as well. AGAIN, if mom is divorced from dad, HIS INCOME SHOULD NOT BE ON THE FAFSA. Some schools (usually expensive private ones) will want the non custodial parents info on another form, but i would discourage you from attending an expensive school that it sounds like you can not afford. Freshman and Soph expecially should avoid any form of loans because too many of them simply drop out.

You can attend a perfectly good state school or community college for what you get in federal loans. Private loans are evil and should be avoided at all costs. Are your parents willing to cosign for you for the remainder of your college career? You don't want to be a senior and have your private loans denied because they have reached their max borrowing amount.

Scholarships are usually set up to be earned by those who work very hard and earn high GPAs and have high test scores. Work on increasing your college GPA and that will help tremendously in your chances of getting a scholarship.

University of Georgia Information

1 Accepts 54% of applicants

2. 89% of first year students are in-state students

3. 2% of first year students had a high school GPA between 3.0-3.24

4. 8% of first year students had a high school GPA between 3.25-3.49

5. A note about the college's admission requirements: GPA in core academic courses, rigor of course selection, and best combination of SAT/ACT scores important. Applications reviewed for conduct issues, recommendations, and satisfactory completion of all courses including required college preparatory courses.

6. SAT Information

c) Writing - The middle 50% of first year students who submitted scores were in the following range 570-660 (93%)

*Not sure if you can get into Georgia. If your SAT scores are in those ranges and you choose harder courses for the last year of your high school and do well and improve your GPA I think you might be able to get in.

University of Alabama Information
1. Accepts 57% of applicants
2. 38% of first year students are out of state students
3. 15% of first year students had a high school GPA between 3.0-3.24
4. A note about the college's admission requirements: Admissions based on ACT/SAT, GPA, and course schedule. Typically, students with 21 ACT or 1000 SAT (exclusive of Writing) and 3.0 GPA will be admitted.
5. You'll get in based on number 4 alone. You're 1600 SAT and 3.2 GPA gets you accepted

University of Auburn Information
1. 80% of applicants are accepted
2. 43% of first year students are out of state students
3. 15% of first year students had a high school GPA between 3.0-3.24
4. A note about the college's admission requirements: Each student evaluated based on combination of standardized test scores, GPA, and additional information required on application.
5. SAT information
a) Critical Reading - The middle 50% of first year students who submitted scores were in the following range 520-640 (22%)
b) Math - The middle 50% of first year students who submitted scores were in the following range 540-660 (22%)
c) Writing - The middle 50% of first year students who submitted scores were in the following range 510-620 (22%)

I think you should be able to get into Auburn as well. 80% is 4 out of every 5 people that get admitted.

Blessings

Cory Said:

is it okay to take out large loans during undergrad and grad- let's say 200,000+ if I plan on being a surgeon?

We Answered:

I answered this before, a lot of people take out loans, BUT it takes awhile to pay them off.
