I’m looking at 67k at Duke and 45k at Michigan and would really love to attend Michigan and join the join JD/MA Russian program but 20k is a decent amount of money.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
If somebody doesn't have a scholarship offer from Michigan I think they could have success in negotiating aid if they have other offers. However, for those that already have merit aid offers, the scholarship letter states something along the lines of offers not being increased once they are made.
That being said, I tried asking for more and was told no (very nicely I might add, Dean Z continues to be my favorite). Can't hurt to try to negotiate for more, but it seems like their policy to not increase offers is pretty strict.
