Negotiating for more scholarship $ - need help

Postby xtian » Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:57 pm

Can someone help explain to me the general process in negotiating more scholarship $? I've been accepted into several schools.. Illinois, Wisconsin, Fordham, CU, Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount, and USan Diego. Problem is, I want to go to Fordham or Illinois, except I was only offered $5k/yr at Illinois and $6k/yr at Fordham. I was offered $15k/yr at Pepperdine, $23k/yr at Loyola, and $18k/yr at San Diego.

I don't want to go to Illinois/Fordham with only $5k/yr, but I also don't want to stoop as low as USD/Pepperdine/Loyola with less than $25/30k/yr.

So, I need strategies for both routes. How would I go about to leveraging pepperdine/loyola/USD against each other in order to get more $ from each school, and what's the process for doing so?

Likewise, what's the best way to get more $ from Illinois/Fordham, and how would I go about doing so?

All help is appreciated, thank you!

One thread is enough.
