I know someone that I think got a full ride at UCLA last year (He's MS1 now). So I think med schools do do things similar to the undergrad regent scholarships.

hey envelope did you mail in the UCSD financial aid forms yet? I just sent them in last week. I know they give grants and loans to most people and I'm pretty sure they give merit based scholarships to amazing people.

i know something about ucla...

i called on monday and the fin aid lady told me that first you must fill out all the papers. then you are elegible to need based scholarships to which you can apply. merit based scholarships are granted by a special fin aid committee based on their own decision...you cannot apply for those whatsoever. then there are outside scholarships. the fin aid office should give you the resources for those...at ucla, they plan to update their website with those sources soon.

does that help??

i thought we were automatically considered for need based scholarships.

hmmm...all i know is that you must complete the files to get anything. that might be obvious, but u must fill out the papers. when she said you can apply for need based ones im thinking she was trying to make the point that the merit based ones are decided by the committee. it makes sense that you dont need to apply for need based scholarships, well besides the gen fin aid app.

hmm. i need to look more into this.

well..i know as for one school, uc davis, you dont need to apply for fin aid to get a merit scholarship. I was fortunate enough to receive a regent's scholarship there and that was before i turned in my fin aid app.
