Northwestern $$ increase

Postby nmb43 » Mon Apr 15, 2013 4:16 pm

Think its possible to use $90k at columbia to get northwestern to increase their $105k offer? Or will they just say.. Yeah Columbia has better stats but we already gave you $15k more

i think you could make it happen, but you'd have to convincingly demonstrate why you are the rare bird that would take NU with, say, +$30k over Columbia.

Make sure you express a sincere interest, but I think you have a good shot.
