sorry about the typo it should read what say DO colleges have? I have done some research on this forum and feel like I have found partial answers but not complete answers. Do the colleges you list have a say on if the scholarship is rewarded to you? So, for example I have been contacted a couple of times by an admission officer from a college I am applying to, this admission officer was an ROTC graduate from that school previously and now after active duty is working in the University's admissions. I did not reach out to this school initially because they are my 3rd choice (because the school is a 55% reach for me according to college-match). I listed my 1st two choices with schools I would be easier to get into. I do really like this third school a lot but am only 55% likely to get in. So here is my question. I know that schools can indicate whether hypothetically I can get into the school, but can they also specifically request a scholarship for me to their school as an option when I go in front of the board? It seems that on early boards more than one school has been offered, do the schools have any say in this? thank you in advance to all.
