I hope not, I need your spot. :P

I doubt it. I don't really know, though.

Have you tried the admissions office at GULC? They might know the answer to your question.

OP was asking if asking the admissions office would work. Asking them this would take away all of OP's leverage.

First off, congrats to the OP for killing it a GULC. That is awesome. Now transfer. I want your spot. :mrgreen:

Respectfully, I disagree, as OP has nothing to leverage at this point.

Preemptively, I fail to see how asking if GULC gives top returning students scholarships would put the OP at any significant disadvantage. It's not like OP has scholarships to lose at this point; nor do I find it likely that GULC would somehow note the OP's inquiry and use that against him/her later, should they get an acceptance to leverage. It's not like this is a unique situation which would surprise the scholarship committee (or whoever doles out $$ at GULC).

Only crappy schools give scholarships to top students to stay. At good schools, one less top student is one more job for somebody else. At crappy ones, since only people with sterling GPAs are getting sweet jobs and the curve is harsher, losing the top students can hurt the school's employment picture more directly.
