Scholarship Negotiation - Cornell to Michigan

Postby tilghmab » Thu Apr 08, 2010 12:07 pm

Just received a $30,000 total scholarship from Cornell. Meager, yes, and from a "lower-tier" program -- is it worth it to try and negotiate some aid from Michigan?

Thanks in advance.

Hell yes. Cornell and Michigan are most certainly peer schools so you have a basis for negotiation.

x2

(because "+1" would make the grand total positive, and that would not accurately reflect the value of Dakatz's post)
