Negotiate With Stips?

Postby TheNextAmendment » Thu Mar 21, 2013 7:25 pm

I'm trying to negotiate with both of my top choice law schools- T25, but my numbers are just about at their medians. Does anybody have any thoughts on trying to negotiate scholarship money and including in the email "...even if GPA stipulations accompany the merit scholarship offer". Any thoughts on this? Would this make the offer seem more desperate, or make them more likely to send some money my way?
Thanks for the Help!

I wouldn't bother with this, honestly don't think it would matter. If they want to give you more money they will...

It's not negotiating if they haven't given you an initial scholarship offer--it's begging.
