I heard that UIUC gives full rides to all Illinois residents who are National Merit SF... is this true? If not, what kind of students receive the full rides here? I'm interested in studying CS but I'm not sure about how much my family can pay, so a full ride would be very helpful. I have a 2390/36, 3.97 UW, and pretty decent EC's... would I expect a full ride or very good scholarship, and would I have to submit my application early or something like that to have a better shot at the scholarships?
