    Personal 2017 experience of more than 20 thousand merit at U.S. liberal arts type schools:
    Centre, Trinity, Wooster, Hendrix, Beloit, Denison.
    Note that high base cost of attendance(tuition, fees, room and board) at some schools can negate much or even all of the merit award . In other words, considering merit award in absence of base COA is meaningless.

    Yeah, the amount of merit doesn't matter. It's like a car dealer giving you an extra 1000 on your trade in. Then you discover they charged you an extra 2k for waxing the thing.
