For example, I'm sure that the school would tell you they do not take part in such a practice if you went and asked the dean or whomever. And I feel it would not be that difficult to poll your classmates, or hell even just your trackmates to see who is on scholarship and who is not. I feel like if you told people why you were polling, and there was enough of a stink about this problem, people would be forthcoming with whether or not they were on scholarship. I just feel like it would be verrrrry easy for a school to get into a lot of hot water for a situation like this and lose a lot of incoming students and the standing they had been working to acheive.
That being said, OP, you're probably just in a similar situation (possibly even at the same school I am) that my school is in. Said school is a top 100, on the up and up and gives a RIDICULOUS amount of scholarships each year to new students. However, at this school, the minimum requirement to keep these scholarships is 3.0, and the school curves its grades to a 2.8. So obviously, there is going to be a lot of scholarship fall out. This is the nature of the game, and I believe is highly unlikely to be some conspiracy against students keeping their $cholarship$.
PM me if you wish to know the school
sounds like we go to the same school
