Worth a Negotiation Shot?

Postby SUCO » Thu May 05, 2011 8:40 pm

So I have put down a deposit at FSU but haven't received any aid at all, which isn't the worst thing in the world because it'll be relatively cheap for the 2nd and 3rd years when I get in-state. Anyways, I recently got accepted to Seton Hall with a 25k a year scholarship, the stip is top 50%. Should I bother trying to get aid out of FSU citing this offer? I don't even know how much aid is left to give out at this point but I'd figure I would ask you guys. Also I'm 3.4 / 162

That was my only scholarship offer but I was also accepted at Villanova, Baylor, Hofstra, and part-time at Brooklyn. I'll give it a shot though I guess, thanks for the input.

Any negotiation is worth a shot. It won't jeopardize your offer of admission and you have nothing to lose from it.

Seriously. Even if you have absolutely no other offers and no other acceptances, a negotiation can only help. I had a friend who had no other acceptances/$$ offers and he just wrote a school saying he thinks since his LSAT is way above median, he should get some $. They gave him 7k a year.
