Figure out what those stips are. Also, what is their projected COA. Then get back to us.
The letter doesn't state anything about a stips. COA is 54K for non res, 48/49 for PA res that I assume you can get after a year
1. Call and ask about stips. Don't let them bone you.
2. Call and confirm you can get in-state after 1 year. Some states will not let you do this.
then get back to us. First impression, though, is that the amount would need to go up for me to bite that hook, personally.
Nearly all of Pitt's scholarships require maintaining a 3.0. With that said, you should definitely call and verify there is no stipulation. If there is, I personally would not attend Pitt, and they are very unlikely to up your scholarship as they don't seem to really negotiate. Believe it or not, 14k/yr is on the top end of what they have been offering.
I tried calling today, but no one picked up. but FWIW I would say thst as of right now it doesn't matter because I really don't think I'll take them over W&L. The post school prospects are way too narrrow IMHO, and 14K is not enough for me to take a rist like that.
Also looking for a general advice:
for the past week or two I'm starting to really loose interest in many of the schools I applied to, and begin to not really care if I get accepted or not. I started the whole process pretty set that I want to attend a top school. Schools like USC, ND and even BU were never real intrest to me. As of now the only schools on my list I remain to be really interested in are BC and WashU and some of it is TLS excitement that I have because I'm so active on their threads.
That said, W&L continues to be a place that the more I research the more I see it can be a really good fit for me in many levels and I dont know if other acceptences will make me feel the same.
T14s that I have yet to hear from (Cornell, Gtown) seem like a really really weak and slim shot. Even there, I really dont know if I'll go to gtwon and not to W&L.
Any advice on what to do next? Kind of in a funk about the whole process
