    I know I brag a lot about the girl-child (a freshman) but her older brother is pretty amazing too. He is about to finish his junior year of high school. He has already qualified for Nationals in Speech. We found out today that he scored a 33 on his ACT! Proof again that every human at my house is way smarter than I am. :eek::D

    That 33 composite score is gonna open up some doors and Bright Flight and other scholarships. That is an incredible accomplishment. You have every right to be proud.

    That's awesome !!!!!!
    That's not bragging it's just telling friends how proud you are of your family and you should be.

    Very cool, my kid got a full tuition, and another 4k per year from Ole Miss for a 32 and 3.5 gpa.

    33 will work out nicely just about anywhere, except Mizzou... Although, they may be changing that with enrollment down.

    As of right now, his first choice is University of Colorado at Boulder. However with a non-resident tuition/room and board of $48k per year he best be getting some really good scholarship offers from there. :D

    I am sure a lot has changed since I went through this with my son.

    Cost of "State" univeristies is all over the place, as are the various scholarships they will give out. And, sometimes it's very hard to get good information out of them. When I talked to Mizzou, I talked to a person who barely spoke english, and didn't seem to have a clue about what I was asking.

    When I talked to Ole Miss, I talked to dean of scholarships and admissions for their School of Engineering, and he basically laid it out over the phone with me. Then invited us down to a football game and sit at their tailgate party in the grove with them.

    With a 33 ACT, and a good GPA you son should be able to get decent Scholaships from some schools. If I remember, University of Arkansas also offered the same basic package my son got from Ole Miss. He just didn't want to go to school there.:wave:

    True. Jazz the black lab that Winger trained is probably smarter. I think I'm at least on par with the blonde lab though..:D

    Tater, what's he want to study?

    I'm a year ahead of you in that process with my son. He graduates tomorrow and decided on Purdue for aeronautical engineering. Had pretty much full ride to Wichita State, but decided the degree from Purdue would be better to get him where he wants to go in his career...

    Check with the schools he is looking at to see if there is an ACT score that qualifies for higher $. If a point or two increase pays big dividends, there is a ACT prep company I'll highly recommend. All the kids I've known that went thru their program bettered their score by at least a couple points. It's not cheap, but the payoff could be much more in scholarships than the cost of the class. Or at least open doors that were not options previously.

    For a long time he was interested in computer programming. However his true passion is history. And this year he decided that he'd rather spend the rest of his life doing something he likes. He wants to eventually end up as a history professor at a college or university.
