Called it!

Sorry guys, but it looks like I beat the rest of you to it. I'm emailing Penn now to inform them that I called it.

Most likely Berkeley (got a matching scholarship--not a full match, but still really significant). Since I'm going into Public Interest, I think Berkeley makes more sense for me. Chicago's also really tempting, but they haven't gotten back to me about my financial aid appeal.

You might want to reread my post haha. It wasn't a full match, but it was enough to tip the scales for Berkeley. It really was a brutal decision though.

Any advice for the negotiations? i.e. should I say if 100k+/Levy I'll deposit today or something?


If Arrow was offered a Levy, they could give you one. I would tell them I need a Levy to sway me from the Dillard, but you do what's best for you. Great options, can't go wrong.

ETA: I brought up Arrow only to point out they have Levy-type $ available.

Ooooh, I remember it being like 2/3rd or something a few cycles back. Guess they changed with the times. Thanks for answering!

Think you might be thinking of the James Wilson, which is around half tuition

Dude, exact same thing happened to me too. It's fate. UPenn just make my decision easy already.

Well, it's nice to have been admitted, but Penn is definitely out. Good job, Financial Aid.

I'm assuming the fact that most people haven't heard back about merit aid yet so some other school that offered aid whose deposit deadline is around the corner wins?

Ayup. I've told Penn repeatedly when I needed to hear by, which they've completely ignored and replied with false promises. There are simply better options right now than to wait for a scholarship that may never come.
