my understanding is that USD doesnt give out many if any FULL scholarships. They have alot of money to give.. and they like to spread it out in 5k increments... 5, 10, 15 or 20. Im sure there are a couple of free rides, but not many
I stand corrected, out of 1000 or so students they have 50 full rides or better, and then another 180 on half tuition or better scholarships, and another 100 or so on less than half tuition... Looks like the top third get some kind of grant money.
Nice thing about them is they have a grip of 2L and 3L scholarships.... Nothing would suck worse than getting in there at the bottom and coming out on top but still having to pay full price.
Incentive to not transfer out if you are in the top 10% at the end of L1.
