Scholarship Negotation Death Match. UIUC vs. IUB

Postby mez06 » Wed Mar 09, 2011 7:09 pm

Do you think I could be able to get a bit more on top of my 20k scholarship offer from University of Illinois-UC using my 35k a year scholarship offer from Indiana University-Bloomington?

I'm more than gracious for the amount but cost is a pretty big factor for me. Whether its $500 or $5000, anything extra would help. I was heavily leaning towards UIUC (even going there to the ASD) but receiving this letter from IUB makes it a bit complicated.

Thanks for the input!

I think no one really knows the answer. IU-B went way outside the box with their offers this year and all schools might know that and be willing to lose few good applicants and call it a wash.

Anything is possible, but the two schools are not peers. UIUC is worth $30,000 over three years more than IUB. However, I am not advocating six figure debt for either school.
