I was thinking about sending an email to the Dean of Students today, something along the lines of this:
Dear Dean XYZ,
I was wondering if I could discuss continuing scholarship opportunities at a meeting with you this Monday morning? I recall being told that with strong academic performance, I'd have an opportunity to receive another scholarship, as the one I received during my incoming 1L year was non-renewable.
Please let me know if that works for you,
Sound alright? My basic strategy is to lay down my grades and see what they say to that and if they don't bite, lay down my transfer acceptance. The problem is I don't really wanna go to WashU (distance, know no body in STL, no friends/no family there, leaving GF, go to school in the market I want to return to). Any one with any advice on negotiating scholarships from schools? Think this is a good strategy or just go straight for the jugular and say I got into XYZ and I'm gonna leave unless you give me money.
Also, what is the best strategy to go about talking to other schools I'm currently waiting on? Is it in bad taste to contact them and say, "I got into XYZ however you are my top choice and I have a deadline at XYZ of July 24, any way I'll be able to know soon about a decision?"
