Hrm, I could try the alternative fields, but I'm not really interested in that. As far as BC, I won't complain too much b/c of the scholarship, and I am happy that they chose to look at the other aspects of my application instead of just writing me off due to my admittedly low LSAT. Don't mistake me for being ungrateful, because I realize they could have given me no money. The key point of the argument was that it wasn't a gift, I view it as a reward for what I earned.
However, I don't know why you made the comment about a high GPA at a state school. State schools have nothing near the grade inflation of privates, and I'm positive that getting a high GPA in Computer Engineering or Math at a large state public is significantly harder than getting a 3.3 in some easy LAS major at a private. State schools don't care if you get bad grades. None of that 'look out for your own' stuff
