I sent an email at the beginning of last week asking to negotiate my scholarship (I have received twice as much $$ from peer schools), but have not received anything even acknowledging that my emails have been received, which is worrisome. I suppose I should call the school today to confirm, but I don't want to appear to be "nagging." It just seems strange that several students on this forum with almost identical numbers sent their scholarship requests at the same time or after me and have already received increased offers?
Also, re: the facilities...Yeah. There is virtually no comparison between WUSTL's building(s) and the facilities of other schools I've toured. AB Hall makes them look like janitor's closets pretty much across the board.
You are not alone on this, I sent an email the day I received my scholly $$ in mid March and heard zilch, called last week to someone in finaid and she said I did email the right person so I emailed again politely....I will be calling later this week if I don't get a response.
I don't want to be naggy either, but the $$ is a big part of my decision, and another peer school already upped their offer for me so I feel like it's game on at this point!
While I will not be joining you guys this fall, I just withdrew - along with my $111,000 scholarship (that was painful). Hopefully, that money will go to you guys! Good luck!!
