You were negotiating with an MVB offer(s)? I'm pretty annoyed that I'm not going to have any leverage with Penn since I'm not going to get into UVA or Mich. I would really prefer to go to Penn but don't think it's smart over CC if they're all at sticker or roughly equivalent.
I had a substantially larger V offer. I think enough for most people to choose V. Penn did changed the initial offer, but maybe most people would have chosen the V offer still. I had my personal preferences, so it worked out well for me. My M offer was smaller. My B offer was comparable. I had pretty much a full offer from UT. I was not really successful with negotiating with MVBD, but I can tell you B was more willing to listen. I appreciate that Penn took my negotiation seriously, but don't expect a full match.
Was your Penn decision based totally on personal reasons, or do you think Penn gave you better prospects than Michigan or Virginia? I really really like Penn and am looking for reasons to choose it over Michigan, haha.
