is there *any* way to get a scholarship from them without leveraging an offer from another school? the only other offer i have is from vanderbilt, which i know they dont see as a peer school.
I don't even think they accept offers from other schools as leverage. In my scholarship letter, it said that it was not in their practice to do that.
Wrong. Every school says that as a general rule, but as with most rules, there are exceptions. I was specifically told by a Michigan adcom member that they're willing to consider offers from UVA and UPenn (the schools which they consider peer schools). I assume they would consider offers from schools ranked higher as well.
Would they consider NU offers?
