St. John's Full Scholarship Leverage...Advice Needed

Postby btr77 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 12:03 pm

How far can I take a full ride to St. John's as leverage. I am awaiting financial offers from Brooklyn, Villanova, Temple, Seton Hall, and Hofstra. Aside from Hofstra, can I realistically use the scholarship as a bargaining chip for any of those other schools? If so, is it as simple as writing a generic "increase" letter and making note of the other offer on the table?

Please advise, thanks TLS!

Doubt if Brooklyn will give a shit about St. John's scholly. But the others, yea, you may have a shot.
