UA is very generous with scholarships, but this all could change if the PACT fails. The PACT trustees or the legislature (can't remember exactly which) has already pressured AU and AU to help by waiving tuition increase for PACT holders, and/or other concessions. So far the big unis have held firm, but if something does happen and PACT fails there will tremendous pressure on the universities to do something for the paid PACT holders. I think some of the initial pressure on the PACT has let up in the past year, but it is still in danger. I know a lot of PACT holders that this means the difference in college or no college or UA or community college, so there is going to be pressure to help these folks, at the very least to recoup their investments and go some sort of concession from the bigger unis.
That aside, as long as UA can, they will try to stick to their agenda of attracting high caliber students both in state and out of state. Based on my son's experience, some of their money may still be going begging toward the end of the application year, so I think they will be over backwards to get an NMF for example. Also based on our experience, that student can get a good education.
