negotiating for a fund?

Postby holacicas » Mon Jan 28, 2013 8:03 am

Hi. I just got accepted RD '16 and I can't wait to visit Chicago!
I'm still waiting for other schools with possible $$, but was wondering if there is any way I could ask them for some funding...
My numbers aren't that great (LSA/GPA both around median) and have a few years of work experience, so realistically I'm not expecting a merit-based funding. However, my family got hit hard by Sandy on Long Island so I'm in a difficult situation to start school this Fall (may even defer matriculation for a year).. Do you guys think that there is any possibility that they could offer even a small amount of funding?

Let me know what you guys think! thanks!

You need to follow their process or need-based funding. After you get a financial aid summary, then haggle
