I think the SIL refers to all scholarships, and anyone under consideration had it in the acceptance email. That being said, I would definitely try and use the Minnesota $ to leverage them. You never know.
Yes, I think SIL is a general way of saying "We are thinking about giving you money." I don't think you should assume you aren't getting anything though. You should write them a polite letter explaining the importance of financial considerations and saying you have x amount from Minnesota. You may have to wait until they see who is accepting money offers first though. Good luck.
I was digging through a WUSTL thread from a couple years ago and found the following conversation:
just a girl wrote:Did you get the Scholars in Law award, egrubs?
egrubs wrote:Yeah, I did. I think that's the name they're giving to all of their $25,000; $30,000; and $39,700 scholarships. It's at least the name they give to their $30,000 and $39,700 scholarships.
Nobody confirmed his idea, so it could have been pure conjecture. And even if he was correct then, they could have begun using that name for all scholarships since then.
