Trying to negotiate for money at an ED school?

Postby abovethelaw » Fri Dec 27, 2013 11:00 pm

So, I got into my top choice school (ED). Now as I begin thinking about the future, I'm having some sticker shock.

So far, I got a full scholarship at a school ranked about 20 spots lower and I got into a school ranked one spot higher than my ED school.

Is there any use in trying to call/email to ask my school for money? I know that the early decision probably makes you think, "what's the point?" But by the same token, I don't really have anything to lose, right?

Thanks in advance!

Are you going to threaten to sit out a year?

You have a lot of leverage right now. So I say go for it.
