Yes. You can apply now. You just won't get an assignment until after you submit your seat deposit.

Correct. But as noted before, taxes will be needed if you take out any federal loans.

Congrats again to all that have received schollies, and good luck to those of you that are still waiting. Mine wasn't mailed for a while after the date on the letter, so don't give up hope.
I don't know if I would characterize it as significantly more generous than other, similarly ranked schools who throw money at applicants with numbers in the CCN range. It does seem like they're being a little more generous this year, though. But based on my experience, I do agree that more people should be willing to consider Cornell with $$$ over CCN with less money.
