Negotiating Merit Aid

Postby crackinthekraken » Fri Mar 26, 2010 9:17 pm

Is there a thread or a guide anywhere that provides a guide to negotiating merit aid? I'd really like some scholarship money, and I read somewhere that there was a thread about just that.

The previously posted thread was very helpful, but I'm wondering since it is getting so close to my April 15 deadlines, whether calling the school directly would be more effective than sending a letter?

Has anyone had significant success with negotiating over the phone?
