JUST GOT THE LOW- DOWN ON MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS
Since many folks on this thread have been wondering what is going on with the scholarships this year, I decided to call the admissions office and see for myself.
First off, Bentley will still offer the 1/3 1/2 and full scholarships. Here is the new twist. They are also offering smaller scholarships in the amount of 5k and 10k. The admissions officer did make a point to let me know that full scholarships are very rare and are only offered to a "handful" of students, so do not hold your breath on that one.
The officer said that the 1/3 and 1/2 scholarships would be about the same amount. I did not want to push, but how can that be? If there is a 1/2 scholarship, isn't that a fixed amount? It does seem like they are being a bit vague.
I believe what is happening is that the 1/3 and 1/2 scholarships will not be quite 1/3 and 1/2 but pretty close and they are offering the smaller amounts in lieu of the straight 1/3 and 1/2.
I guess they want to offer more scholarships to more folks.
