They said if you don't hear from scholly by 3/1, it means no money because the fund dries by then.
No, "the fund" is not a real thing, and if it were, it has an infinite depth.
What are your grounds for saying that? There may not be a literal fund since what they are giving out is discounts not money, but there is presumably a limit to how many scholarships they give out before they would be taking in too little tuition.
You said the fund dries up on 3/1. When $500,000 of allocated scholarship money becomes available due to people who withdraw in March/April, you don't think they re-use it? Additionally, let's say the law school plans to hand out 2 million in scholarships to their matriculants. They're not gonna say, "hmmm idk, this candidate is above both are 75ths and really prefers Iowa over WUSTL, but if we give them an additional 5k/yr more scholarship , we'll be at $2.015M. That totally ruins our books!"
You aren't 100% incorrect, but the misnomer of "no more scholarship money" needs to end.
Not true. They actually handed out way more scholly offers than their fund expecting only 20-30% people will take the money. So most of the "returned money" are not reusable because they were supposed to be returned as oversold tickets
Again, I have to ask for the source or the citation. You are speaking with such absolutes that I am curious if you are an Adcomm or just merely a run-of-the-mill psychic.
He's using logic, and it's sound logic fwiw. No need to pretend like he's speaking blasphemy.
