I don't think those stats are as disconcerting as you guys are making them out to be.
The bolded statement above is accurate. regardless of if the scholarship is offered to you, you still would not be eligible to maintain it if you were not in the top 35%.
If you have the scholarship you have to be in the top 35% of all students.
And no, it's not necessarily true that those students are more likely to be in the top 35%. scholarships are also offered to to URMs or to some people to sway them from other schools.
Maybe it's not AS dismal, but it's dismal.
It's an awful requirement and it sounds like way too many people lose their scholarships for it to be a good decision. The people who got the 2.3 requirement are much luckier (though I'm guessing their stats are better).
