Could be wrong about this, but from what I remember, the loans are through the FAFSA, which is completely separate from USC's scholarships. USC does a mix of need/merit (which ends up being mostly merit in my opinion) and I got mys cholarship offer in a separate letter. No idea what your specific situation is, but if you're surprised by what you got you may want to call to make sure.

8am. But IIRC, it's just registration up until 8:30. I tried looking for an itinerary of the day online and could not find one. Did you RSVP for the event? When you did your RSVP, there should have been a schedule, and you should have signed up for some panels for the morning. I'm doing this completely from a vague memory, but I think it was registration from 7:30-8:30, some kind of welcome speech, maybe 2-3 panels, lunch, and then in the afternoon, there's a mock class and a fair to see all the student organizations and such. From 5:30-6:30, there is a closing reception.
I know the breakfast starts at 7:30, people filter in gradually and it depends on how comfortable/eager you are meeting potential new classmates and current students in an informal setting. I can't remember what the itinerary was but you've got something going the whole day, and I really enjoyed myself. The most valuable part of the day for me was the closing reception, because I got to just chat with current students about their lives, where to live, and what to expect. Plus it's a great opportunity to look around the school and see how people treat each other, and how happy they are with their lives (keeping in mind it's finals time). Perhaps the biggest treat of all is that I will be there! ...No, but seriously, it's fun and a great way to meet people no matter where you are in your decision process.
