$0 club! At least they sent emails instead of keeping us in limbo until we got the hint...

How kind of them.

Is there anyway to negotiate up from 0? "I'll take 50 cents!"

Johann knows there isn't enough money to get you to leave CA for Chicago. Especially with you have HYS options.

I wasn't being serious haha. I might try wading in it if it was 70+ degrees outside but it's way too cold right now.

Do you think we can use dying of hypothermia as leverage in scholarship negotiations with NW?

Yes, but I don't know when the deadline for them is/was. I think it's $400 if you fly in. $250 if you fly in from more than 600 miles away

I think it's $250 but you have to be flying in from 400+ miles away or something.

As for the polar plunge leverage... imagine if NU had an event where the 0L who stayed submerged up to their neck in Lake Michigan the longest got a full ride scholarship. Seems like a fun, totally safe promotion.
