    Hi,
    I was wondering if the more experienced forum members might have an idea about this.
    What percentage of the total scholarship pool is distributed at each board? I know the first board is a small amount of winners (unsure of total percentage). Is the second round of winners larger than the third round? Vice-versa?
    My DS was boarded the first time around and we are awaiting to see if he is fortunate enough to earn a scholarship on this board.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    Clarkson has in the past given some numbers regarding the scholarships, such as X awards out of Y Boarded Applicants. You might search his posts and see if you can find the numbers. It is true that a larger number of awards come from the second and third boards, I'm not sure of the percentages. An overall percentage of awards to boarded applicants that has been mentioned in the past is around 20 to 25%

    "For those of you who lie awake at night worrying about things you can't control...approximately 950 boarded...approximately 30% got offers...all offers were 4 year offers. Letters are mailed, and most of the winners have probably already been contacted or noticed their status changed. If your status didn't change hang in there."
    That was from Clarkson's post in November 2014.
