I agree gibbybah640. They would rather cut the scholarship money available than their salaries and bonuses.
I think that maintaining a 2.5 GPA should have been a criteria for scholarships from the very beginning. If the lottery scholarships were awarded after all other options were exhausted, and you worked that hard to get into college, maintaining a "C" average shouldn't be too difficult.
I've never seen a college or universities' "books" (pardon the pun), but it seems like the outrageous cost of a college education is pure greed. Education, Insurance and the Medical costs are out of control and squeezing the middle-class to the breaking point. When Big Business took over these entities, the bottom-line and their fat bonuses are all they care about.
Maybe the Lottery Commission should have realized that raising a ticket price to $2 and then making the odds WORSE, wasn't such a good idea in a economic downturn, huh? Most people are not going to spend $10 on lottery tickets for a whisper of a chance to win anything, when they need that $10 to feed their kids or put gas in their car.
