My name is Austin Cunningham, and I want to go to the University of Chicago (UChicago) for physics and pre-medicine. The purpose of this campaign is to help me be able to fulfill my dream of studying at this university, which according to U.S. News and World Report is tied for the fourth best in the nation.
While I have decent academic qualifications (such as being the valedictorian of my class, being a Kentucky Governor's Scholar, 97%ile plus standardized test scores, leadership in multiple extracurriculars, musical and mathematical giftedness), my financial qualifications could use some improvement--namely improvement in the form of money!
UChicago promises to meet "100% of demonstrated financial need," but as I have calculated (using its own calculator), the amount left for my family to pay is too profound to work. It is, therefore, my great hope that combining hard work for money in high school with this will allow me to go to my dream school! I thank you in advance for your help!
