My speculation is they are trying to allocate dollars to those most likely to attend (big schollys for just over both medians).
This is almost certainly true, based on what I've seen so far this year (and last year). For those of you disappointed with your offers: if you really want to go to WUSTL, then you should contact admissions and convey to them your strong desire to attend. Tell them you appreciate the scholarship, but tell them it is currently not competitive with your other offers. The worst they can say is no, in which case you can always withdraw and attend elsewhere.
