I take that to mean there is definite potential for scholarship money he thinks could compete. So what should I say? Obviously I'd like a Mordecai, but I am passed interview time for that, so I think if I asked for that he may just say "sorry, can't do that" and not bother counter-offering (I haven't been officially accepted yet, so there is no risk to their yield here).

Thoughts?


Well, the truth is that it wouldn't make sense to attend for anything less than NU's $150K scholarship. So that's what I'd say. If he says they can't do that, then there's no loss to you. You wouldn't have gone there anyway, right?


Yeah, you're right, I think I'd go Duke over Northwestern at equal cost due to certain things specific to my interests, but for less than that, I don't think I would (oh, if only I had ties to Houston...) choose it over either of these options, so I'm just gonna ask for the whole shebang and see what happens. If it comes up nil, it's no major loss I suppose.


Why do you wish you had ties to Houston?

It was a joke re: DF's statement, cuz Houston is a good market for Duke cuz of Baker Botts, but its not something i'd gamble on without connections to TX. 160k with no state income tax and low CoL does sound nice though.
