I hadn't even considered IUB until a couple months ago when I decided send out a few more apps just in case my original apps didn't go so well. When I got the acceptance letter I was freaking floored by the scholarship (120k). I did a little research and IUB is giving out a ton of these almost full-tuition scholarships. I mean a ton. This makes me a little suspicious b/c it seems like they are trying a little hard or something. I dont know maybe its just a bruised ego because I am not the only one etc etc.
Does anybody who got admitted with one of these scholarships having any thoughts?
I doubt any other schools to which I applied are going to come close to this, so it is going to be next to impossible to pass up.
holy moley - trying a little hard? Geez, some people are never happy. They always want more money and then a solid school ponies up some serious cash and they get suspicious.
No, not concerned, not suspicious. Excited? yes.
To be honest at first your post pissed me off, BUT, point taken. I agree with you, legit school and near full tuition scholarship, I am stoked. It is irrelevant how many other people are receiving scholarships.
