Scholarship Negotiation for big money

Postby pah1664 » Fri Jan 27, 2012 9:13 pm

I'm pretty well versed in the methods used negotiating scholarships, and from the looks of these boards folks have had pretty good results. Most of what I have seen has been people with little scholarships getting medium-sized ones. Has anyone been able to move a large scholarship to full tuition?

I am in at Alabama with 23.5k/31k and SLU with 27k/36k. Under ideal circumstance I'd like to stay in St. Louis (my hometown,) but I'm not sure if I can justify paying more money for SLU than Alabama.

166/3.3

Trying to go to school for less money. Not more.

but I understand the sentiment. 166 is really an annoying score.
