I received a second letter in my packet that expressly addressed the issue of merit scholarships, and it stated that I was eligible for merit aid but all of their resources have already been offered, and I would have to ask to be re-evaluated in April for merit aid once they have a better picture of what will be accepted and declined. I'm not sure to take that at face value, or read between the lines in that, since I really have no idea how merit aid works at universities. However, I would assume if there was no mention of it in your packet, that they felt they didn't need to offer you any. I would expect though that it wouldn't hurt to attempt to negotiate some sort of aid come April if that's how the ball rolls around there.
