That sounds strange since they only give scholarships to like 8 people, but I don't really know.
Speaking for the class of 2013, this is not true. First, the scholarships are pretty rare. Second, there was not a GPA requirement attached to my, or as far as I'm aware of, any of the scholarships for our class.
Unless this is a new practice for the class of 2014-beyond someone is really off-base.
Class of 2014 here, and this strikes me as highly unlikely. While I haven't been going around asking people if they've received scholarship, all the sections seem equally intelligent. Additionally, the Gates Scholars are even spread around. Am I absolutely certain? No. But I think it is highly unlikely.
