offered at the same time as letters of acceptance, or do they come afterwards?  Thanks for any information you can provide.

I think it all depends on the school you are looking at...

One came with one came after.

I would guess it also depends on how strong you are at a given school.  If you were just outside the merit scholarship range, and people they gave scholarships to decline the offer of acceptance, you may get an offer later on.
