My sister has a 4.1 and scored 32 on the ACT and couldn't even get accepted to an Ivy League cause she only has 1 extracurricular. She definitely wouldn't have been able to get any scholarships. She can't even get enough scholarships to afford to go out of state to a regular school. In state she has full paid tuition, though. To any in state school. I didn't realize it was so hard to qualify for this stuff.
