Do not send this email. It is insulting and will not be received well. You're getting almost full tuition already. They aren't going to increase your amount simply because of potential/likely tuition hikes. Negotiating based on competing scholarships is one thing, but this just reeks of classlessness.

Ha. On second thought, TITCR. No idle threats, though.

Oh my God. Do not send this e-mail. Seriously, if you've been given near-tuition, then count your blessings ITE and chill.

Oh, and even ignoring the tactlessness of this e-mail, unless you've been offered full tuition at a comparable or better school, then you have absolutely nothing to leverage your scholarship with.

This wouldn't be a potential email to CU would it?
