These reps want to make a sale, so you need to play hardball and say you are thinking about switching to a cheaper service. Also, don't feel bad saying "you gave my friend this price, so I know you can do better." There initial offer to me was $3000 with"Leadership" and "Public Interest" scholarships, but after threatening to leave three or four times, I saved myself a nice piece of change.
Is this typical? I got $400 off (so down to $2800) and then just signed up and paid the $250 deposit. Is it worth playing hardball? We don't have Themis in my state.
I don't know if this made a difference, but I just filled out out of the tuition assistance form and then called them a couple of days later saying that I needed to know how much they were going to give me before I could decide whether to sign up. The next day, I looked on my account and saw that they gave me $1,200 off. But I'm taking California, which is like $4,200, so they had more room to wiggle.
