Use Wash U ($$$) or NU ($) to negotiate with Vandy ($$)

Postby djdral » Wed Apr 01, 2015 10:02 am

Hi friends!

So I've been admitted to the following schools with the following total scholarships:

Northwestern - $60,000
Vanderbilt - $80,000
WUSTL - $120,000

My question is, should I use WUSTL's or NU's offer to try and negotiate at Vanderbilt (I know they say they don't negotiate but I'd like to try anyway)? Do I get better leverage with a higher offer from a peer or a lower offer from a superior school?

Thanks!

But I mean: Which offer should I present to Vanderbilt? I can't do both can I?

WUSTL deposit deadline was yesterday. Unless you deposited at WUSTL, this offer has expired.
