The benefits of a QB scholarship - 4 yr tuition paid to the most selective schools in the US - is made very clear. But how many of these scholarships are available and are given out each year and about how many apply?
What are the odds of getting a QB scholarship? On the back of any game of chance that is sold in the marketplace there are labeling/disclosure rules about the odds of winning. Before I get flamed that QB is not a lottery, I assume that even if one meets all the selection criteria, an applicant is still subject to the numbers, the numbers available.
When my first daughter went through the college process a few yrs ago, I recall one college that touted its relationship with Oxford and the possibility of going there on a temp study arrangement by virtue of this partnership. Much more inquiry dtermined that , yes, there was a partnership and , yes, a student could go to Oxford, but it turned out that the student needed to walk on water and there were like one maybe two at most a yr who availed themselves of this . I wonder if QB is similar.
