Honestly I like IU better than UIUC anyway, but a similar scholly offer from them would have been nice. It's actually quite refreshing to know that I'm 90 percent sure that I'm going to IU, though.
Have you thought about submitting your IU scholarship to UIUC and asking them to match it. Schools like Wisc, MN, IU, UIUC and Iowa are often willing to match/reconsider scholarships?
I just sent a letter asking one of these schools to match the full ride of another.
EDIT: I guess if you like IU better then there's no real point...
Like you said there's not a big point for me to do that for Illinois, but I plan on leveraging my RA position at Iowa for a stipend at IU.
Please keep us posted on this!
