My daughter was invited to apply for a full ride scholarship to her preferred university. She spent several hours writing an essay doing a group problem solving project and being interviewed. There will be over 1000 people competing for 20 spots. Seems an unlikely proposition but just showing up she should get about 1/2 off her first year’s tuition. Not too bad for a day’s work. While she was going through the program, the parents spent a few hours getting information about the university itself. It was pretty useful and we learned some things that we could pass along to our daughter. The most important detail we found out was that the Honors college within the university will only add a little extra work but should provide her some significant advantages from early registration and extra advisor. The only real extra work is a senior thesis.
