Football scholarships

<p>Hey people,</p>

<p>someone told me he got a football scholarship for attending Columbia as a Sophomore? Actually I'm a bit confused? Is it possible to get this as early as in Sophomore year?</p>


<p>I doubt this is accurate ... IVY league schools can not explicitly give merit aid of any type (athletic, music, or even academics) ... any aid is financial aid to fill financial need. That said better athletes (or musicians or students) may get better financial aid packages than their peers ("better" meaning closer to the EFC and/or lower amounts of loans).</p>
