    I don't know much, but I was accepted as a "Dean's Scholar" which included a $11,500 per year scholarship. They have a couple levels of scholarships including Presidential Scholarship (full), A.J. Drexel Scholarship up to $26k), etc.

    According to the Financial Aid packet they sent me, the average financial assistance package offered is $16,700.

    Hope this helps.

    They're pretty damn fast. They were missing my transcript for about three weeks, but once I got it in, it only took them about another two weeks to send out the decision.
