Yeah, I was just puzzling over this too? Should you mention offers from other schools or wait for their initial?


Not the time to start negotiating I think... But yeah, I found this to be weird too. I mean, any amount will make a difference, but I can't say what will sway me until I have everything on the table from all schools I've been admitted to.

I am just going to be perfectly blunt with them. They asked what level would make a difference in my decision so I'll tell them exactly that

When were you accepted?


Early November.

if it's too early to negotiate, are you just going to talk about tuition, col, etc when asking for a specific amount?

I got the email as well. For my personal cycle so far, I already have my scholarship offers to the two main schools I'm interested in besides obviously Georgetown, and they were high enough offers that I'm going to be very surprised (I'm already surprised tbh) if negotiation helps me any with them. So should I go ahead and work that into the email reply that I send then?

I feel like my PS was already all about how Georgetown fit into my ideal or whatever, so I'm not going to send anything on that account. It's just the other part that I, like most of you, am perplexed about.

Also accepted in November, I believe.

You haven't all submitted FAFSA already, have you, by any chance?

Did anyone who was accepted in January (or I guess February) get the scholarship email? I'm hoping this round of emails was just for October/November admits

Yeah I'm early December so I'm really disappointed. Maybe shouldn't be so surprised given GPA though...

Got the scholly email. Admitted early-mid December. No FAFSA.

Also unsure about the length of these "tell us about fit/amount of $$$ that would make a difference". Does anyone know what TCR is for this?

My guess is no longer than a paragraph. I would consider this as a time to be direct. To that point, I am wondering why people think that this is not the time to mention other scholarship offers. I have a lower T14 full ride that I'd like to mention to GULC to reinforce the level of scholarship that I'm seeking. I'm really eager to read why anyone would think that's a bad idea at this stage.

on second thought, I actually think it's fair enough - if you need them to match that to make it worth your while, just tell 'm so.

So was anyone who got the email a splitter? Am I delusional to have expected something??

I'm a splitter, kinda? 3.6x, 169.

There must be a second round of emails, and I'm sure you can email and ask to be considered as well, esp if you have a good offer from another school.

Mine ended up being a few paragraphs long, since I never wrote a "Why Georgetown," and I made an argument about being public interest so needing $$.

FWIW:

I got a scholarship, and never got one of those feeler emails. So don't feel left out if you didn't get one.

ugh TY for posting! Did you have to do anything to get an initial offer, or were you just patient?

Just be patient.

I think this is the best advice for all scholarships: Wait as long as you can, things will start to look clearer financially to schools once it's closer to deposit deadlines.
