From the scholarship letter, "This scholarship, in combination with any need-based grants you may receive or have received from Georgetown, is for $XX for each of three years of full-time study here at the Law Center."
Do you think this means that I would not qualify for any additional need-based aid?
Boo. Filling out that Need Access took for fucking ever.
Not sure that is correct. Second page of scholarship letter I saw states "if you qualify through the Office of Financial Aid for a need-based grant of more than $XXXXX, you will receive the higher amount instead."
May want to check last paragraph of letter for the above language. Your letter could be different. But letter I read seems to clearly indicate you get the higher of merit or need based award if you receive both.
Mine had that language too, but I highly doubt I would qualify for a greater need-based aid than the merit scholarship I received. My understanding is that you get the higher of the two, but not both.
