I've received my need portion but nothing on the merit side. I spoke with the Fin-Aid office briefly they said they were meeting this week and still had about 40% of the applications to go through. I'm unsure whether I should sit tight and see what they come back with or let them know what Michigan is giving me beforehand.
What do you guys thing?
I feel like if I tell them what Michigan is giving me, then it is unlikely I will get any more than that. On the other hand, I have a concern that if I wait too long, they might not have much money left to distribute
Based on last year's thread, it seems like they really do send out initial scholarship information through late April, so personally I was thinking of sending in competing offer information upfront to avoid a really stressful scramble as things get close to deadlines. I guess it also depends whether you think it is likely their initial offer could beat Michigan's, maybe based on something like mylsn?
