Anyone ever hear of a school increasing a student's scholarship after his or her first year?  My dad seems to think I could use the 4.0 and potential transfer as a bargaining chip for more money.  Any thoughts?

Transferring is a good bargaining chip.  I'm in the top 10% of my class, and 2 days after I submitted my request for a letter of good standing to transfer, the dean at my current school called me and told me he "was pretty sure he could find me more scholarship $."
