Agreed. I'd be very surprised if anyone has offered her anything.

If that's what she did, she wouldn't have gotten any scholarship for the fall semester to begin with, so any talk of yanking anything half-way and expecting pro-rated reimbursement would be indeed moot.

You're a U.S. pole vaulter, you're done with school (for whatever reason) and you're going to keep jumping because, you know, it's what you do and you're not done doing it. Saying you're going pro sounds a lot better -- and at least opens the door for offers -- than saying you're "going unattatched."
