Do any colleges offer full rides to a student, for something so simple as a 1550 SAT or 4.1ish GPA?
My family isn't too well-off, and I was curious to know if any school would pay my complete tuition. I have lots of EC's but I don't want this to be a long process..

Well, from your name I gather that you're from California...I live in New Jersey and I'm fairly certain that a 1550 SAT and a 4.1+ GPA will guarantee you a full ride to Rutgers and TCNJ, both of which are fairly decent public schools. I'm not sure if the same situation exists in California, but good luck in finding a school that will give you a full or at least partial scholarship.

Thanks.. Yea the name is bullcrap cause I was bored and that's the first thing that came to my head- sad, huh? I definitely want to go to the east coast and major in politics/communications. So does Rutgers guarantee a full ride- meaning I can go for free, based on my numbers? Or is this a maybe, subjective deal?

If you're interested in engineering or sciences (simply because those fields are best at this school), I know for a fact that you can get a full ride + stipend at UT Dallas, which is an excellent public school (they've been talking about making it into a flagship school for UT). A friend of mine with nearly identical stats is going there; they sent him his scholarship information before he even got his acceptance letter.

Well, I know that above a certain cutoff for SAT and GPA, Rutgers and TCNJ both give full rides...but unfortunately, they're only given to NJ residents. The most an out-of-state student can get is 5000 dollars a year, whereas the total yearly tuition including room and board is a little over 20000. So if you can't afford to pay 15000 dollars a year for tuition at Rutgers, you'll either have to find another school...or move to NJ. HOWEVER, there are full scholarships available to out-of-state applicants at TCNJ. If you have a 1450-1600 SAT I score and you're in the top 5 percentile, then you'll get a full ride. If finances are really tight, consider it. Though it may not be an Ivy league education, it's certainly worth its value.

Try Syracuse University and Boston University. SU is good with financial aid and merit money. BU is good with merit money (but kind of stingy with financial aid). If you are from California, both schools like geographic diversity. Both schools have excellent communications departments and good political science programs. Totally free rides, however, are few and far between just about everywhere.
