Looking back at last year's thread people had to withdraw without ever hearing back, or withdrew from other schools and got no scholarships from B at all.
That's essentially what I know too. And I think I read somewhere/ heard from someone that it really is not a sure thing at all, so I guess it doesn't hurt to try but don't get your hopes up. Also, I'm not sure when they let people know if and by how much they are "matching" because they say how they try to help students get the highest possible money deal by different means, such as need based financial aid, scholarships, etc. But I'm not sure if one is contingent upon the other, so they can try to give someone with less money some more, or if it's based on how much they want you (because they have limited resources). Sorry, I realize that's probably even more confusing but that's exactly how I feel
