Quite high in my opinion and very consistent.

You think it is reasonable for a school to promise full rides knowing that 30% of the students will lose them? Most of those students only went to the school because of the scholarship. Now they are looking at dropping out or borrowing six figures of debt to continue school . Do you think that is what they expected when they got a full- ride? No, they all expected someone else would lose the scholarship but they would be fine.

There is absolutely nothing acceptable about a school giving scholarships knowing that 30% will lose it and will most likely turn into full tuition paying students. Putting all the scholarship kids together ensures that the schools projections will be accurate.

I feel that these stips are an unethical practice designed to entice students to attend on false expectations.


I completely agree with you. Schools should be required to report how many students lose their scholarships.



I think schools should not have stips at all. Iowa or some peer school, dropped all stips once the unethical nature was published.

If you get a scholarship with stips, you should consider it as a one year tuition scholarship. Don't make decisions as if it is a full ride- because it isn't.

What difference will that make, other than to volunteer for the downward part of a tie breaker?

I would apply to some peer schools, higher ranked schools and TTTs in order to get some negotiating done to see if you can drop those stips


I would do the middle one and then go to one.

Seton Hall's corporate law program looks pretty strong.


What is corporate law and how, specifically, is their program strong?

It's hard to tell at this point my dude. It all kind of blends together into a big troll soup.
