My DS is a college programmer at Iowa State. He was recently informed that his name has been put “in the hat” for a scholarship. Questioning him, he seems to have no specifics – but it sounds to me like it might be similar to the full scholarship usually issued prior to freshman year. They wanted his physical updated, SAT scores re-submitted, freshman year first term grades etc.. Would they be going to all this effort if this wasn’t an advanced standing scholarship? DS seemed to think that he would be in competition with other programmers from the Midwest area. Any insight here for a confused dad?
