12k a year are Seattle U.

From what I it generally works this way.
Public Schools: Very little merit aid, mostly need based, but even then very little. However the tuition is much less

Private schools that are happy with their rank: A moderate amount of merit aid.

Private schools that want to boost their ranks: A whole lot of merit aid to encourage people with good numbers to go.

Top ranked Private Schools: Almost no merit aid.

I got a full tuition scholarship from Baylor.
I was looking at UT Austin site the other day, and they do offer full scholarship with some extra money I think for about 8 incoming first year students per year.

I got 10K from Colorado for my first year and full-tuition+ at Nebraska (I'm in-state there).  Most of the state schools I applied to offer 10K for incoming students as their highest scholarship, making it full-tuition for the in-staters and cutting it in half for out-of-staters.

10K from Colorado?  Did you already submit your FAFSA?  I was under the impression that CU doesn't hand out scholarships until they receive the student's financial information.  Did you get the scholarship info with the acceptance? Thanks.

I got the letter 2 weeks after I got my acceptance.  I have NOT sent in my FAFSA yet.  I read on their Web site that they didn't had out scholarships til March, but I still got that letter...  It is a merit scholarship, no need involved.
