Tell target school about scholly offer now or wait?

Postby groberts » Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:01 pm

I got a full ride offer from one school that's much higher ranked than the school I actually want to attend (for geographic reasons). Do I tell target school now about the offer, or wait until they've actually made their own offer? I don't want to jump the gun, but am afraid they'll give out all the full rides and then say, "Whoops, sorry.... Too late."

No idea what the protocol is on this part of negotiation.

Let them offer first. There is no harm in waiting. Still very early for financial aid decisions.
