University of Utah merit scholarships

Does anyone know whether it makes a difference when an application to the University of Utah is submitted if you are hoping to get merit money as an OOS student? In other words, is there any benefit to submitting an application well before the merit application due date? Will submitting earlier increase the chance or amount of money the student will get?

No difference for any date before Dec 1. You don’t find out any earlier either. But miss that date and you are unlikely to get much merit aid at all.
