Oh yeah those female lax players at my school are completely professionalized. They're only in it for the money. Their entire purpose is to generate cash cash cash and they do it easy. Total distraction from the academic mission of the school.

Speak for yourself. I had a full ride and I needed it.
This would be an excellent thing to do, especially get rid of football, basketball and baseball.
Most runners don't get anything from scholarships anyway, but a lot of opportunity is taken away by the football programs.
because sometimes low income can indirectly prevent you from being able to work as hard as you can. sometimes these people havent been given the same chance as someone from a richer support system
Screw need-based. I'm sick of need-based. I think for those with low income who otherwise could not afford to go to college, interest-free loans are a much better idea. And then offer merit based scholarships to everyone. If a low income person works hard, they'll get a full merit scholarship. If a rich kid slacks off, he gets nothing.
To anyone who objects, tell me why this isn't fair.
Not sure how having less income prevents you from studying less. Assuming merit scholarships are initially based off of high school performance, all books are provided, so there is no cost associated with learning at a public school. Please provide an example to clarify what you mean.

I think I can help here; you can see the truth of this statement most vividly in South Africa, where a lot of the new towns have been built with schools. For many people in South Africa, the first generation to have access to schooling occurred about 10-12 years ago.
