Ivy League schools provide need-based financial aid only. Interesting that Trepanier says he received a basketball scholarship. Perhaps Columbia has a recruiting violation.
what's even more strange is he says it's full tuition. I follow Syracuse Orange basketball (so legit contenders), and they only offer full tuition to a few select players. It's just odd for him to say that. For the record, I used to work in admissions and financial aid at my Ivy League university, I'm not trying to throw around BS facts or anything.
I wouldn't be surprised if his parents fronted his full education and he is trying to pass it off as "I got a full ride basketball scholarship". Nobody would want to support the guy if he said "yeah, my parents gave me $170,000 for college..."
And back on topic, great interview foof, I hope you win (and not because I wish for $10,000 of Kenneth Cole to be dumped on you)
