I'm between U Chi and Northwestern. Vastly prefer Northwestern. My worst nightmare just occurred-- Chicago raised my scholarship and Northwestern held firm. Now I'm in the "it's stupid to pick Northwestern" range of cost of attendance.

Seriously shopping for same-day flights to Chicago right now. That's how hard I'm trying to talk myself into U Chicago (I didn't like it when I visited).

Whyyyyyy couldn't Northwestern have given me just a LITTLE more!

Ask them for money again even though they said no. Like this afternoon.

Yeah and I would show them the new UChi offer and explain why you want to be in Chicago and then say that you will basically accept their offer immediately if they can match/raise

That's exactly what I'm planning, I was just really looking forward to finally making a decision, like, today. Instead the threat of a double deposit is looming.

Thanks for ya'lls advice in this time of need.

Re: accepting NU's offer, are the scholarship acceptance form and the deposit payment the only things to submit? Some schools I was considering requested other documents, but I am not seeing anything else for NU. Thanks!

On the "accepting our offer" admitted students page there's also a generic "Candidate Response Form" that it says you need to fill out!

Wasn't that the form they sent us when we were first accepted?

I'm not sure, but it's different from the Admitted Students Interest Survey if that's what you're referring to.

I think hearsay is right--I think there are just the candidate response form we got with our initial acceptance stuff, the scholarship acceptance form, and paying the deposit.

Won't matter even if they do. You won't have to speak to them ever again after you matriculate.

Also now that the deadline is just a couple days away and I'm assuming a lot more people have their minds made up -- any ladies interested in sharing an apartment? I'd ideally like to get a 2-3 bedroom with 2-3 people to bring the price of rent down. Not set on any specific neighborhood, but would definitely like to be within a 10-15 minute commute if possible.

I submitted a scholarship reconsideration form about a month ago and still haven't heard back. Anyone else in this boat?

You may want to email admissions and make sure they received it?
