I was accepted through on-the-spot admissions at my high school. The counselor told me that she would recommend me for an academic merit scholarship, but couldn't tell me how much they would give me. I received my acceptance packet a week later, but the letter informed me that I was still being considered for a scholarship offer, and the offer would come in a few weeks. I'm currently waiting for that. Anything need-based would come after FAFSA, I'd imagine.
