Doctoroff went to everyone in the last wave and I don't think it comes with any money.

Anyone know how useful a large scholarship from Northwestern is in terms of negotiating with Chicago?

This is a suit and tie event, yeah? I was hoping on going but wasn't really intending on bringing a suit for my coming trip

I was able to negotiate with my NU scholarship pretty successfully last year. Feel free to PM if you want to discuss details.

Did any second round folks get $ yet? I haven't seen any but not sure if I missed it. Been losing my mind.

At least its not just me...that would have been ominous!

Regarding the negotiation question, how long did it take folks to hear back on their new and improved offers?

I'm hoping that's the case. At one point I thought I had a shot at the Ruby. I knew I massacred my interview.

Very disappointed in my scholarship as well, but compared to what is being reported on LSN, it's about right.
