Has anybody heard about scholarship money from Santa Clara? On LSN it doesn't look like many people have gotten any.

I got $12K from Santa Clara when I got in last December.  From what I've heard from a current student there, Santa Clara doesn't give out much, though.  Best of luck!

They like to boast about how diverse they are, so I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. What are they, #1 in diversity? I think I read that somewhere.

I was offered $11,000.

As a merit scholarship?  Did it come with the acceptance letter?

Yeah, it was merit aid- I got a letter a few weeks after my acceptance (so maybe early February?).  My offer letter said that amount was only promised for the first year, but could be renewed and/or change denominations for subsequent years if my GPA was above a certain threshold.  I hope that helps more.
