Full tuition scholarships

Postby jhyt » Wed Nov 09, 2011 5:39 pm

If a school offers a full tuition scholarship to a certain amount of students (say 20-25) and most of them do not accept (they withdraw their application and commit to other schools) does the school then go ahead and do a second round of full tuition offers to other applicants? For instance, Columbia Law School supposedly offers a limited amount of Hamilton Fellowships. If most of those applicants decide to accept at HYS, does CLS offer some Hamilton's to other applicants?

I do not know for sure, but I would think they just use historic yield to determine how many to offer.

The answer for both CLS and UChi is yes and in fact that routinely occurs
