Can they do this? Changing fin aid awards.

<p>I just received a letter from Rhodes College today (April 25, really late!) stating that they're sorry, but there was a "clerical error" in determining my combined merit scholarship/financial aid award. They took away 3,500 each year.</p>

<p>This is so disappointing, because up till now Rhodes was my first choice, but now i'm more than a bit frustrated with the College. My parents and I are pretty upset about this mismanagement (not to mention having to pay the extra money!)</p>

<p>Is this even allowed? Does anyone have a similar experience?</p>

<p>thanks</p>
