I don't think it makes a difference to be honest. I'm guessing the tuition waiver comes from a pool used for all graduate programs (based Aguilar saying something about it being from the graduate school office or something), and the other is from the law school.
I mean, you could try, but no one has been successful thusfar (that I've seen anyway).
Aguiliar didn't rule it out when I spoke to him, so at least it's not policy to <i>not</i> negotiate. I'm psyched to have gotten accepted (and pretty fast) given my GPA, what it boils down to is that i should have maintained my residency in UT since I had no real plans of attending my home-state school. Crystal ball fail.
Ah, yeah, that sucks. When I talked to him he said 'it's always possible, but in the past 3 years we've never increased scholarships', but I was trying to negotiate for more $, not initial $. Again, I'd try if I were you, the worst he can tell you is no.
