This is a fantastic idea - but it won't work. GW's FT and PT scholarship pools are separate. Switching to PT from a FT application/scholly means you forefeit your FT money and they have to re-evaulate you based on what's left in PT.
Source: I'm in almost the exact same situation and talked to Dean Maggs and Dean Sim about it.
This is good to know, thanks. I don't want to spread misinformation. What else can you say about their PT vs FT scholarship offers?
Dean Sim said that the PT pool is smaller, but a bit less competitive since many PT students have their employers paying their tution, and that the most they've ever offered a PT student in merit aid is 15k/yr.
