I got 2k a year with a 157 and a 3.8 (instate so i have cheaper tuition anyway) I was surprised because of my numbers (to clarify: i wasn't expecting anything), but it's still not a lot, so I emailed them letting them know that I got full tuition offered from Mercer, 75% tuition from MSU, and 15k a year from Charleston and basically saying "hey is there any way I can get more." I sent this email yesterday so I haven't heard back yet, but I'm betting I'll get the same response, I'll let you know if/when I do.
If it's any consolation, I've seen Lewis and Clark do the same thing to people with pretty good numbers, so it's definitely not an isolated incident, I don't believe.
Also, I feel like I haven't seen instate people get as much money (both this cycle and past cycles on the board) as OOS students. I think they're trying to draw in new residents.
