Is it possible to rescind a scholarship offer?

Postby AZ123 » Sun Feb 22, 2015 6:21 pm

This may be answered elsewhere on this site, but I couldn't find a definitive answer...

Can/will a law school rescind a scholarship offer based on poor senior year grades? For example, if I had a 4.0 when I submitted my application in October, but end up graduating with a 3.7 or 3.8, is it possible or likely for a school to take back the scholarship they offered?

It's possible but really unlikely. If you murder someone then it becomes more likely.

Just send the final transcripts when you're supposed to. Also assuming you didn't get F's or straight D's. You'll be fine.

You would have to get a 2.0 in one semester to tank 7 semesters of 4.0 and end up with a 3.75. That would raise flags for me, but I can't speak for schools.

Yeah, that kind of a drop doesn't really seem possible (especially for someone who maintained a 4.0) in two semesters. Just don't fail all of your classes.
