Ummm... a bit of both maybe (hopefully). I'm guessing I would qualify for need-based, but I don't know if they'll be willing to look at my financial records as an international student. With a 4.0 / 168 / Masters, I'm hoping I can maybe get a few merit-based ones. I got sent a few this cycle, without requesting them. What is the difference in terms of the application process? Should it alter the way I apply / ask for them? Thanks a lot... all this advice is much appreciated.
