hey az, so the consensus from what I've seen is that you cannot receive a named scholarship @ CLS unless its with admission. You can get a "Butler"-esque grant award however -- $25K or $30K -- but not the "Butler" itself. With your HS acceptances, I'm sure you could get the money, but they really reserve the prestige names for those 175+.
Have you PM'd Pacifica? I know he came to Columbia with yale, stanford, and harvard acceptances, and was shot down earlier this year.
very helpful. i just got my award and they said they were unable to give me grant money. is that where the 30K would have shown up? im shocked that i got 0 instead...
