No, from what I have heard/read.

Yeah, that's sort of what I heard as well, just wondering if I'd missed something. I'm glad I'm happy where I'm at, as no scholarship would wound me DEEPLY. That sure makes transferring a much rougher decision, I'm surprised so many people aim for it.

I'm a transfer student and came in as a 2L.  I was promised "if I did OK" that I'd get a scholarshp --- but I've been on the Dean's List twice at the new school and am still waiting.

"Once they got ya --- they got ya!"

A lot of schools won't really give good students money to keep them from transferring.  Also for a lot of people the extra weight a t14 degree carries in the job market is entirely worth it.

That being said, I haven't heard of any school that gives transfers scholarship money.  I'm sure there are 1 or 2 somewhere that do, but it isn't common.
