If someone turns down the offer (which from the looks of this thread won't be many TLS'ers), I'm betting the money will be recycled but not in $150K forms, more through smaller scholarships. Why would they give a student a full ride when they would still come with half or 2/3?
Well I'm sure they'd only offer them to people that didn't look like they were going to pay the deposit. Either one would make sense though. Mostly wanted to point out it is very positive that they seem to be taking steps to make sure they give out all the scholly $ they have allotted.
True. They are also being pretty intelligent about it. Another poster mentioned the Ruby, Hamilton, Levy, ect. as alternatives. I think NU did a pretty decent job so far of awarding the scholarships to people who would legitimately take them -- from what I could tell, their numbers were good (above 75ths) but not at HYS/hammy/ruby lock level.
