Thanks for taking time to answer question on this board.
I was wondering if you can give any insights on the merit scholarship award process. I would be interested to know what you think are factors in determining merit scholarships. Needless to say, I understand that merit scholarships are awarded to any applicant who the adcom really wants in a class. I was wondering if there can be more insight into what qualities such a candidate might possess.
For example, while a school might have mean GMAT of 720, and applicants over 700 are seriously considered, would a GMAT score of 800 really help the merit scholarship award decision?
