I got the packet (big envelope) in the mail today with my acceptance to UIUC. I'm out-of-state, 2.76, 166, sent in beginning of Oct., complete in late Oct. The offer was for $10,000 per year. No phone call, though.
I had this school pegged as a school in my range, so to get an acceptance this quickly with that money shows respect. Of course I'll still make a rational decision, but this is a fine offer.
I still have to look at the materials, but did you guys see what the conditions were on keeping the scholarship? I didn't see at quick glance.
