I thought my amount was per year at first and I was still disappointed with the amount. I mean, both NYU and Columbia gave me 5x the amount Chicago did. Judging from my visit and friends' testimonials, it seems Chicago has a massive inferiority complex going on with certain schools including Columbia. Does anyone know if a Hamilton could sway them to throw some more cash my way?
Not sure why you'd want to go to a school with such a big inferiority complex, though.
Hey, I don't care if they have one, I was just commenting on something that many people have noticed on these forums that might help in the negotiations. They asked me where I've been accepted, then they spent the entire visit putting down Columbia and telling me how Yale can only produce academics with no practical skills. It did seem unprofessional and left a sour taste in my mouth, but considering I'd like to work in Chicago, I'm not too fussed about it. However, it seems like you could potentially use that against them for negotiations.
I got 35k total Zuko, so I'm in the same boat as you.
WOW! honestly I am even more surprised by yours than mine! At least I am in good company though
