Do any of y'all know of someone who has received scholarship money after being accepted off the waitlist?  I'm wondering if I screwed up by not sending a LOCI right away.

I was waitlisted back in January.  I would have wanted some scholarship money to attend because of the high cost, and I applied for the PIPS scholarship.  When I received the waitlist notification, I figured "Well, no chance I'll get scholarshp money now," so I didn't send a LOCI.

But after viewing stats on LSN for this year, I see that my index score was higher than most of the people accepted (77% have a lower index score, 23% on par or higher).

My chances of acceptance were only about 50-60% according to online calculators, but I was still surprised because comparable schools (Arizona, Baylor) offered me scholarships.

American just doesn't give out much money, period. Sucks.
