This is/was somewhat common with 3rd tier schools - they are "buying" high gmat scores that help them with rankings. Usually this is true for schools with mid-600's as average and they will usually give some $$to a person with at least 700 and if you have 730+, you will often get the full ride. Works well if you want to go to that school. On the other hand, top 10 never do this this. _________________ Founder of GMAT Club Just starting out with GMAT?

Can u give me some more info on this , like the names of the colleges who give such scholarships ??

From what I personally know/remember here are the schools that give \$ to high GMAT scorers:
Owen (Vanderbilt)
UCSD
Pepperdine
Loyola
Eastern Washington U in Spokane, WA
Columbia (used to a long time ago)

Mr.Nink got a full ride at Yale but then he had an obscene GMAT score. There was also another Indian guy who got a full ride at Emory but then again he had a GMAT score in the 99th percentile.

There are several aspects that impact such as time of application/chance of a person rejecting acceptance, etc.

There is more money in R1
Also, if the AdCom feels that a person would reject admissions (safety school), which impacts their rankings, they may try to sweeten the deal. At the same time, if it is an international applicant from a "poor" country, they may not grant admissions when money is out, as they know, the person would reject.

Interesting - this table says that a lot of schools provide some fort of Fin Aid to about 60-70% of people, but I think very few get it based on the GMAT.
