What all did you send in your letter? I'm trying to figure out how exactly to negociate for scholarship $ when I don't have an offer from a school but I have offers from peer schools.

I've heard mixed opinions on emails vs. snail mail. Should I literally send a copy of my other scholarship offer with my letter/email? Thanks for the help btw!

if you negotiate with a school and get a better offer- how bad is it to turn it down for another schools offer? ( i.e you play one school against another)? or is my conscience acting up again?

I don't think it's that big of a deal, as long as you didn't say anything like "I will attend if I am offered $". The schools know that we play them against each other, I'm sure :)
