MSAR says UPenn gives out around 10 full ride scholarships
That seems to be how the administration looks at it, because they explicitly call it a full tuition scholarship. But there are still some people who get extra money for living expenses too.Cleveland Clinic has gone tuition free. If you consider getting in merit-based, then yes.
How far above Penn, Chicago, and the other school's GPA/MCAT 75% do you have to be to get these scholarships? Or are they given on the basis of publications and other ECs?
I read an mdapp that had 3.9 s&c.GPA, tons of activities, won goldwater, honors this, honors that, 41 MCAT, and other great achievements.
The uni of Michigan offered him a $160,000 scholarship and Vanderbilt offered everything for free.
I think his app also included saving a bunch of children from a burning orphanage.
