Experience with TopStepTrader program?

Suppose you complete the TopStep combine successfully, do they fund you with the account size of the Sim program you entered in?

Would be interesting to know their protocol with funded live traders because assuming somebody was profitable on a 20k personal account, it would be pretty beneficial to do the combine at 150k and then be funded on a 150k account after successfully completing the challenge.

This would be of great benefit to the profitable retail trader who wants to go pro with a larger account. But I also see problems with funding a guy 150k live solely based on Sim performance.

Conversely, if you pay TopStep monthly to trade on a Sim, there would be zero benefit of Sim trading with the larger account size (which costs more) if they will start off your funded account at 25k or something like most other prop shops, which would give you no incentive to sim trade on the larger accounts.

Anyone have some knowledge on this? I'm intrigued here and there is little information on the exact details of this on the TopStep website. My apologies if this has been asked already I did perform a quick search of the other threads though.
