To Ohioption: These are excellent questions. My scholar class (2011) had one Goldwater winner and one Goldwater honorable mention (me!). I also received full-tuition+stipend into a Computational Biology Ph.D. Program at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh immediately upon graduating YSU (where I double-majored in mathematics and biology). I later opted to leave this program and go into business, but this was a personal decision. The YSU scholars program's achievements are legitimate.
