My D just signed her NLI this past week. When she was initially offered her scholarship (partial) from the coach on her OV, he said that it was tuition only. We were a little bummed about it, but still what was given was a very nice amount that we were thankful for, especially being OOS.
When her NLI papers arrived on 11/12, we read through them and we were quite shocked when it read full grant in aid, which included room and board (for the percentage that she was being offered for tuition). Then it also had a check next to books, so it looks like they will be paying the same percentage for books as well.
Very happy!! I know that today is the last day for Early Signing, but come Spring, make sure you really read those papers, maybe you will get a nice surprise like we did!!
