Also - nothing says a school/ program has to offer full tuition, that represents the max they can offer - they can offer any fraction of tuition. This allows them to spread there AFA's across more athletes.
I think this is accurate although I also believe that there is a limit to the number of full scholarships a school can offer to players on its hockey team. I am not sure of the number but I seem to remember it being in the 12-14 person range. I also believe that this represents "full" scholarships and that a team can offer 12-14 full scholarships and the remainder of the players "partial" scholarships. I am curious what percentage of full constitutes "partial."
