negotiating merit aid

Postby j210010 » Tue Jan 07, 2014 11:46 pm

I am very lucky and got a few full tuition scholarship offers for schools ranked at about 50. I got into one T14 school and am waiting to hear from the other schools to which I applied (mostly T14). I would like to ask for more aid from a school that accepted me but did not give me any aid (not the t14 one). Also, I would like to ask if I can get additional monies for non-tuition expenses from the schools that gave full scholarships.

Can anyone give suggestions on asking for more money on top of tuition scholarships, or is this too greedy?

Also, when is it appropriate to start negotiating? I do not want to wait until the schools' money pool runs out, but I have not heard from a lot schools, so it's hard to begin the discussion.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
