Noticed on LSN that no $ has been given out yet.
- Are there any scholarships you have to apply for
- Is any money given out prior to financial packages or all with the package?
- Will boalt offer me 150k via matching if i have 150k at UVA? if so, paint me yellow and blue now
On the ASW, you can select to be considered for certain named scholarships. However, most of them are pretty specific (like one for Blind applicants, for example). The Matching Scholarship is what you "apply" for.
From what I know, money is given out first with the named scholarships (see above), second with the financial aid info, i.e. very occasional need-based grants, and third, the matching.
In answer to your matching question, I've heard Cal will not match UVA $ for $. They will probably give you like half of that since all t14 schools know UVA is ridiculous with merit aid
