This is possible. It appears that most people with numbers over both medians have received full rides. I'd guess, that due to taking splitters in both directions to shore up their medians, the number is more like 15%....which is still huge.
I actually called up one school to negotiate using Indiana's scholarship, and they basically said.."After that donation, we can't really compete with them scholarship-wise". I'm guessing I'm far from the only person using that as a bargaining chip within the T30 or even T50.
It's looking more and more like IU will be the spot, but I'll have to visit all the other contenders first.
