I was offered money last year. I don't remember when it was, but I think it was seperate from the acceptance, but not far after (maybe in january?). I was 3.5/165, average soft factors, hard science major. They offered $20,000 a year, but only renewable if in top 20% [or 25%?] of the class. I think that's a pretty big risk and didn't take it, though I may have if the money was guaranteed.
