3.1/168 who will give me the biggest scholly?

Postby Litts787 » Wed Dec 21, 2011 10:02 am

So I sent out applications to all the schools I would actually attend about six weeks ago but I was wondering if there is anywhere I could apply this late and still get a big scholarship that I can use to help me negotiate with other schools. Any ideas?

Here are the schools I have already applied too.

CU-Boulder
DU (already admitted with 21k a year)
UW-Madison
USD
Loyola LA
Loyola Chicago
Depaul
Fordham (Waitlisted)
George Washington
WUSTL

Schools where you are over their 75th percentile.

I hear the IU scholly is useless for negotiations.

FWIW, IU-B is being extremely stingy this year. People who would have easily gotten the 120k last year are getting 30k divided over all 3 years.

WUSTL might give you some money since you're at the magic 168 but your GPA is rough.

GW only gives schollies if you apply ED; you'd be lucky to even get in regular decision with those numbers. GW pretends to have need-based aid, but they basically only give it to 1Ls (most current 2Ls that received it 1L year got either $0 or had their amount drop dramatically - think $15k to $3k)).

FWIW, CU gave me $5k/yr with 3.4/169. so they're probably not giving you anything worthwhile either.

Typically if you land on the WL than you won't be getting any $$$. WUSTL seems to be more forgiving of GPA for sure.

The underlying problem is that big splitters don't really get a lot of scholarship love and what they do get is less negotiable.

It will be IUB and it's hardly worth it.

Personally, I would retake to 170+
