Scholarship Negotiation

Postby drmguy » Thu Mar 03, 2011 4:41 pm

I have been admitted to my top choice at sticker. If I negotiated some scholarship from my top choice I would be done with my cycle.

I am tempted to email them saying that they are my top choice and if I received a reasonable scholarship I would definitely attend but I am not sure if I should wait until I have more offers in hand.

As of right now I only have TTT and TTTT scholly offers.

Should I email them now?

Ok I am just going to send the TTTT offer to the TTT and then vise versa and finally send both to my top choice.


If my top choice says no then I will send $ info from similarly ranked schools when I get them later.


Any problems here?

Depends, in what range is your top choice ranked?

same kind of predicament here. I tried to use vocab that made it sound like literally ANY type of scholarship would assure my enrollment.
