It's actually somewhat of the opposite, after speaking with the Dean. They over-extended themselves last year by quite a bit on initial offers and got screwed with an anomalous amount of people accepting offers - so they are being conservative this year and know that it could cost them some good students, but at the end of the day they have budgets that must be met to function.
ETA: more on track for this thread, however, I recently submitted Scholly negotiation request but have yet to hear back. I've seen a few people say same day or 48 hours for response, any one with other experiences?
