i think most schools are okay with email. some, like probably harvard (if only one was so lucky!) would want a physical letter.

From what I can tell, post-acceptance merit-based scholarships are rare and/or laughably small. And it's sort of lame if Mr. Full Ride is perpetually at median while your heavily indebted ass is sitting at the top.
its all about rankings. getting the best numbers into their school. once your there, why would they care anymore.
