I'm not considering any of the ivies or other schools that don't offer much merit based financial aid because i need some. Unfortunately my dad owns a small business so on the 1040 our family income appears to be 300k it's actually much lower, under 100. I also have a brother so asking my parents to pay completely out of pocket for one of those schools simply isn't reasonable. I received the RPI Medal and the Bausch & Lomb Rochester scholarships.
Other academic stuff:
I'm a full IB Diploma Candidate with 4 HL's and I'll probably be a National Merit Semifinalist as I'm 5-7 points above the typical state avg.
Do you guys really think that the schools I listed are more matches/safeties???
