Dear 100 Hour Board,

How high does your college GPA need to be on average to get a school scholarship? I got a 3.76 first Semester, Will this get me anything ?


A: Dear NKOTB,

Possibly. That is right about where the scholarships start. You see, scholarships start from the 4.00 contingent (or 3.8, or whatever the particular scholarship level is), and are awarded to those who qualify (those who applied for it, anyway) on down the GPA ladder until they run out of funds. At least, that's how the ones I applied for worked. They ran out of funds before they got to me. With a 3.76, you have a fairly good chance. Just don't let it slip. It's pretty easy to get lazy and let the second semester slide and then be in trouble....
