Just Wondering if ED ever comes with any Merit Money?

Postby roxy8338 » Tue Jan 26, 2010 12:43 am

I applied ED and got in, and just sent out a scholarship form this weekend. I fully expect not to receive any money (and went into the contract knowing that), but I was just wondering if ED ever comes with merit money?

UVA seems to so if you got in there, you are in luck! But other schools specifically say that if financial aid is important for you, then ED isn't the route to go. So it depends on the school, it seems.

"TLS: How does applying early decision affect one's merit scholarship prospects?

I treat the ED applicants the same as if they applied regular decision. If I did not, word would spread pretty quickly and I’d expect far fewer ED applicants the following year. Some who apply ED and receive scholarship assistance are quite shocked. For example, I gave $20,000+ scholarships to two ED applicants and they were quite surprised. "
