ED Scholarship negotiation

Postby loslakers » Wed Dec 28, 2016 8:45 pm

i know you lose a lot (all?) of your leverage by applying ED, but im still curious if its possible to still ask a school you've been accepted ED for somee scholarship money

You can ask, but they're not going to give you any. Why would they?

u still have the same leverage as you would if you weren't ED.

Basically you offer them "give me $ or i wont come to your school"

Problem is they know your alternative is them or no law school at all so your threat is less likely to be taken as credible.

So you have the same leverage except you don't. Brilliant analysis.

The "leverage" here isn't telling the admissions office you won't go to school. Leverage comes from being able to tell them that you have a comparable offer at a better school. Since ED is binding, there's no leverage.
