If NU tells you that they can't provide you any more funding when you share with them your UT offer, I'd go back at them saying, I'll deposit right now Xk more per year. If you are really just trying to get that 15-20k to tip the scales from them all being equally tempting.
This same argument could be made for UT over NU i guess as well.
Has anyone ever actually had success with this level of directness?
every bit of negotiation advice I've ever seen said this doesn't play.
Crap, that's what I wrote in my reconsideratikn form....
I would entertain saying it if the reconsideration is rejected.... but that's really more of a last ditch effort anyway I assume.
