Congratulations! USC gives additional merit awards, as you've read about here on cc. Top merit scholars may get these additional awards so check your accounts. Your University scholarship of $1000/semester adds up to an additional $8000 over 4 years.
camomof3, my S is a Trustee and got a University scholarship of $2500/year. But that was 4 years ago. I thought T's were still eligible for this award.
