While I am grateful, the school requires that I remain in the top 15% to retain the full award, and the top 25% to keep half, which I find doable, but perhaps too ambitious. Are other offers similar?
Yes the requirements where about the same last year and it sounds like they haven't changed. These requirements are pretty ridiculous to be honest
I agree, and in consideration, the real value of the scholarship may be reasonably limited to the initial award amount itself. That said, if I uphold my end of the bargain and finish in the top 15%, is the scholarship renewed for the next year only? Or is 3L year included as well?
I'm not sure but I would guess it would only be renewed for the next year only. No other school that I've been accepted at has scholarship requirements near this harsh. I will talk to someone to see if there's any way these requirements can be lowered because this is making me seriously rethink Howard. The top 15% of the class is 24 out of 161 students
