For those of you with merit aid - did the merit scholarship come as part of the Financial Aid (need-based) decision letter, or separately?
I think the answer to your question is both of the above. I know of two different scenarios (but there could be more):
Scenario 1: people received separate merit aid letters (although these could have been for only Wilson and Levy awards);
Scenario 2: people received the financial aid decision letter, and either (1) only received a need aid award with no mention of merit (such as myself), or (2) received a need aid award and were told how much merit award they also qualified for.
I'm really hoping that by the end of April, everyone will clearly be told exactly how much need and merit aid award they will receive, if any.
