I got the email as well. I wrote the essay, and about a week after i emailed it back, i was accepted with a 75% scholarship. I think they use it to see how interested you are, especially if your numbers are above both medians ( or one is really high), or you are out of state, or a combination of the two. They are being really generous this cycle with money, so I think they want to see it given to those who are seriously considering attending.
