Did you just get it today? I think TCR is to be honest and clear, not mentioning other offers specifically. Something to the effect of:

"GULC is a top choice for me, but financial considerations will be a large factor in my final decision. I am fortunate to have already received substantial offers from competitive schools. Given the high cost of living in DC and [insert personal factors here] I will likely attend GULC if I am offered a scholarship for [XXX amount/XX% of tuition]."

What I did was mention that I had received offers from schools that were in much more affordable locations. I mentioned the cities, but not the schools specifically, and asked them to match the cost of attendance.

I don't see the issue with citing specific offers... can anyone offer any insight here?

Well you put all your cards on the table, for one. The negotiation is usually a back and forth.

I told them my offers, and instead of straight up asking for a better/competing offer I just told them that I was looking forward to hearing back from them about money and stuff.

Also just got the confirmation email today after sending my reply in last week, and it freaked me out a little because I (of course) jumped to conclusions and thought they were actually telling me something besides just 'we got your email.'

i put a number in my email just because i wanted to set the baseline, especially since the initial email basically asked us what we want. i figured if i was vague or just said i want something "competitive" then i would really be letting them control the terms of the negotiation... and i'm sure they'll screw me regardless, but that's besides the point

Checking in...Got the letter yesterday after being held. VERY excited, but the prospects of $$ seem low since I was held for so long.

My scholarship email said to respond "by Wednesday, February 11th." I'm hoping my Duke scholarship offer, which was mailed on the 6th, will be here tomorrow afternoon and am waiting until then to give my response. Anybody think this is a bad idea, or you think I'm fine sending in the letter on the 11th?

167 3.77 GPA accepted on the 26th. I would like to work in the DC metropolitan area and GULC is my #1 pick of schools. That being said, I am not willing to take out a quarter of a million dollars in debt to attend. Mylsn puts the chances of a scholarship offer at 33% and the average amount at $70,000. What I'd like to know is 1) What do you think my chances of receiving the scholarship email are? 2) If I do not receive said email, should I contact them myself?

I have the same story exactly. I figured that I might as well not try to play games with them--there's only one scholarship level I'd consider and they should know that as they deliberate.

Thanks for writing this. I was feeling a little dumb for being so excited to get these credentials and then immediately having no clue what to do with them now.

lol +1. After the NU bloodbath yesterday I was excited for anything that wasn't "We found certain aspects of your application compelling. Therefore, the Committee does
not want to deny you outright."

This might be a really stupid question, but what are credentials?
