My anecdotal experience: they only offer merit aid or need-based aid, not both (at least that was the answer I got). I know peer schools like P may package scholarships and grants together. I don't know if anyone has gotten any sizable grants to M but maybe they give everyone merit money that they allot for so they can control the budget? I think I would probably have received more need-based money from peer schools.
Anyone have any different experiences?
Ah, I see. Thanks for the info - because I've been working for past several years, I wouldn't have gotten need-based anyway. so, if I get something from Michigan, it definitely would be the best deal for me.

But I dunno!
Long time, no talk, dulc! (I haven't heard from other schools, so not as active) that probably makes sense. Again, since my numbers are no good, I wouldn't have qualified for any of those big schollys at other schools, so Michigan is the best deal for me....
why, why - everything points to Michigan for me?
