Unsubstantiated hearsay

Posted on February 5, 2010. Filed under: Unsubstantiated hearsay |

This is the first entry in a new category of posts, interesting things I’ve heard about the Kalamazoo Promise but can’t attribute. 

I HEAR THAT… students are using their Kalamazoo Promise scholarship as leverage to seek financial aid from other, non-KP eligible schools. A KPS senior applying to the University of Chicago told the financial aid office there that she already had a full tuition scholarship at the University of Michigan and that, if they wanted her in the Windy City, they would need to match that. I don’t know what the response was, and I have heard that she will be staying in Michigan, but kudos for trying! The high-school students tell me that lots of kids are doing this.
