Did they mention this at all during the preview days or send out other info about it? I wasn't aware of it until just yesterday when I was just browsing around the website. With the lower amount and scholarship $$ UA looked very promising for me. But with at least an extra $15,000 it's not looking as hot anymore (no pun intended).

Thoughts?

Damn. I did not see that..

Still won't really effect my decision. I might ask for a little extra money because I want UofA to be cheaper than my other option. It used to be, now it's just about the same.

I spoke to Mr. Eden and he said that unfortunately their scholarship funds are dried out and that they are slightly over budget. He also went on to say that "things look very tight for us this year". Oh well it was worth trying to negotiate, I'm with you though Barkley as it won't really affect my decision. I just hope they don't cut quality too much or have any more tuition spikes like that while we're there.

Also ASU's jump in the rankings :roll:

I could really use some help! I've been accepted, with scholarships, at U of A and at Lewis & Clark in Portland. Aside from difference in ranking, can anyone help shed some light on how well these schools are regarded on the West Coast and job placement success? I did my undergrad at U of A and would like to try somewhere new, but I'm not sure if it's worth it for a lower ranked and slightly more expensive school. They both have programs I am interested in... Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

I don't know a lot about Lewis and Clark, but from what I know I think Lewis and Clark is the place to go between the two if you a) want to work in the NorthWest or b) want to do Environmental Law. Other than that, I think Arizona is a better option.

Also, I just noticed the tuition hike that U of A is going through. It's nearly 40k a year in non-resident tuition. Can anyone make an argument that it's not worth it with a 10k/year scholarship? I'm just having a little buyers remorse I suppose.

Well, on the upside: Cost of living in Tucson is incredibly cheap, and the lifestyle is wonderful: swimming, biking, hiking and margaritas in the sunshine under the spray of misters. not too shabby.
On the downside, it's difficult to achieve in-state tuition while attending school.
Can anyone comment on scholarships being increased after the first year (to those who do well, obviously) to entice people from transferring out?

Either July or August! I'm going to be out of town during the second half of July, but I wouldn't mind securing a July lease and moving down a little earlier. When are you planning on moving?

I'm actually not applying til next year. I was just doing a little gunning. Haha. The thread was too dead for my tastes. Hopefully next year I'll be able to move in about mid july. (fingers crossed)

I just moved down and am getting settled in.. Found it easy to find an apartment; I just drove around in areas that were convenient relative to the school and found a place that way. For the most part I think living north of campus is recommended, but I think there are quite a few nice areas to live in and around Tucson!
