Very great question. I absolutely agree with Abhinav's answer. In addition, there are other ways that you can apply to different institutions depending on your eligibility. I mean this in regards to scholarship programs that distribute your application for the award to universities of your choice (specifically the ones they are partnered with). One particular one that I applied for myself was the QuestBridge National College Match.
QuestBridge's website is as follows: https://www.questbridge.org/high-school-students/national-college-match
Through the QuestBridge application, geared towards academically striving seniors in high school that are low-income, you have the opportunity to get matched to a top college with a full-ride or extremely generous scholarship. This is just one out of many other ways that you can apply and get financial aid. I figured to mention this to you if you haven't heard of it and would be interested.
