So I guess if you haven't heard anything yet, hope for Wednesday, and if you're not going to get the named scholarship, I still think she meant you'll get some type of award on Wednesday anyways.
I have some other scholarship offers from other schools -- is my best bet to send them in now and hope for a higher than it would have been initial offer or wait and see the initial offer and then try to negotiate upwards using my current scholarships?
I emailed Bayrex with a similar question and he made a good point. While the scholarship committee will certainly reconsider their initial offer in light of new info, there is a lot less money available after those offers go out. I would say your best bet is to try and get as much as possible initially, since that is probably when the committee is most likely to be generous.
