Maybe $5k off of the $17k price of law student housing and they already told me I have a great shot at paying $2k for tuition by way of scholly. Any thoughts?
Yes. if they offer student housing, i.e. the are the landlord or owners, you can possibly negotiate down. The only wrinkle is that admissions won't control this so you will have to have them argue on your behalf --some will be good at this and eager to do so and other lazy and unaccommodating, I would imagine.
I feel like I should offer a consulting package for this, i.e. for 1k I will negotiate your rent down 5k
I already spoke to residential life and they weren't having any of it. I figure the only shot I have is to ask admissions if they can give me a stipend to use on housing. Is this a solid strategy? And yea that consolidation package would be attractive to many prospective students I presume lol
