Leveraging/Negotiating Scholarship question

Postby salvage » Tue Mar 01, 2011 4:24 pm

I'm trying to come up with a tactful way to negotiate a bit more merit aid from a few schools I've been accepted to, but I'm having some trouble writing a letter. I'd also like to have them either remove or lower a rather frightening GPA stipulation. Could someone either post or PM me a template they've successfully used when communicating with a school? I've read the threat regarding leveraging aid, but I'm still not sure how to word it.

Thanks!

Someone must have something they could share. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

If you haven't read these, then do so! I'm drafting mine right now.

Thanks, I had already read the first one, but the second one was very helpful. Still, if anyone wouldn't mind PMing me their negotiation letters/emails, I'd really appreciate it. I'm also trying to decide if I should ask them to remove/lower the stipulations.
