When did people typically submit the scholarship offer you were looking to get matched? Also, did you just submit the largest one you got? Would it make sense to submit, for instance, a Michigan one for a smaller amount than a Duke one, because they figure you're more likely to be actually choosing between Michigan and Berkeley?
Sorry nobody has answered this, but I don't think anyone here really "knows" the answers beyond pure speculation. I submitted mine as soon as I got my first T14 offer I was seriously considering (UVa), though that was still too late (early April, I believe). Not sure if the Michigan/Duke thing makes a difference; if I had to answer that, I'd say it probably doesn't matter because they judge you on your own merits whether you deserve the scholarship rather than what other school you're considering. After all, it's a bright line regarding what schools they accept competing offers from and what schools they don't. But I could be wrong.
