If I drop out do I have to pay back the merit scholarship I received? That would be devastating.

Do less.

Seems like you don't have to repay.

how is this reasonable at all? unless the scholarship carries the condition that you must work as an attorney for x number of years after law school. a lot of us received different amount of fundings, if not big scholarships. It never occurred to anyone, including those who consider quitting, that the scholarship would have to be paid back if anything happened.
