Those are good points the Widener scholarship is 14,000 guaranteed and I have to maintain a 3.0 each year.
As Matthies has said, location is very important, in addition to the curve/requirements to keep the scholarship at each school.Also, regarding Delaware, does the state really have that much business? I thought it just has lots of corporations registered there without much physical presence. Dallas has a pretty heavy business concentration: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_major_companies_in_Dallas/Ft.Worth
I have been offered two big scholarships one to Widener 42,000 for the three years and a 25,000 scholarship to Texas Wesleyan, but I have been admitted to some better schools like Franklin Pierce and Michigan State. I am just wondering what people's experience have been as a scholarship student and is it worht it to take the money and go to a lower ranked school. Where when dealing with the slightly higher ranked schools there isn't as much attention. I am not getting into Harvard or anything so is a tier 3 school really that much better than a T-4 and having 40,000 less debt. I need to make my decision soon and I want to know what other people think.
Thank you for that asking how many kept the scholarship is a great question that I will definetly be asking. I wish I wasn't in CHina now and I could investigate some of these schools a little more. La Verne is in L.A. which is my hometown and there is some opportunity. I guess the curve to keep the scholarship is 2.6 which shouldn't be to difficult but I don't know. Are there any current La Verne students anywhere??? Alumni who have had succesful careers etc? I just want to hear from someone other than an admissions officer.
