    If you are looking for big scholarship money from this university, maintain your GPA and shoot for a decent score on standardized tests (although this has less value than class rank and GPA). Saint Ambrose gives out automatic merit scholarships based off these things. Don't be afraid to visit campus; everybody is very honest, helpful, and friendly. The people here will make sure that you are informed in your decision of where to attend college, whether it is at SAU or elsewhere. Also, if you're looking for even more scholarship opportunities, don't forget to try out for music or theatre scholarships or ask about athletic scholarship opportunities. Overall, ask questions, focus on your school work, and come see campus!

    Really spend an overnight at ambrose and talk to students there before you decide. Just visiting the campus with your parents for 1 day doesn't give you a good enough feel for how it will be when you attend.
