I was just busting your balls. But I felt bad so I checked LSN. So far no one with a 170+ has a scholarship offer, but they gave out seventeen full scholarships (and a few lower amounts) to 170+ applicants last year.

And don't get bummed out just yet. They've given out less than half of the scholarship offers they gave to 166 - 169 applicants. Like beamsmehome said, I have no idea how they figure out who to give scholarship money. But by the looks of LSN, most of the people who end up getting some withdraw anyway. So I'm thinking if you keep in touch and let them know you're serious they'd like to extend an offer to someone willing to take it.
Anyway, it's Christmas eve and still no word from Cornell, so I'm going to go ahead and take a hiatus from LSN for a day or so. Happy holidays, peeps.
