Highest ranked school highest Scholi

Postby yuppitsme » Wed Mar 22, 2017 10:31 am

My highest ranked school, Michigan, gave me my highest scholarship (that I am considering) at least thus far. Does this mean that I shouldn't bother attempting to negotiate with them? I don't see them having a reason to raise my scholarship since the only higher offer I have is from WUSTL which I don't see as being useful to me in a negotiating with Michigan. I am still waiting to hear back from Duke but I am not sure when I will hear from them. Gtown gave me less than Mich - has any one had success in negotiation Gtown up and if so has anyone had success negotiating Mich with Gtown.

It can never hurt to ask for more. Odds are you will never interact with the admissions department again, so there isn't anything to lose even if you appear greedy as they want to charge you thousands of dollars.
