Be happy. What are you going to do, tell them you need 2k more per year or you're going to go to a worse school?

EDIT: grammars...

What's the total difference in cost of attendance? It's more than $2,000, I bet. I still don't think you're in a strong negotiating position but it never hurts to try.

+1, maybe WUSTL will do more than just match the 40k?

If you get a school to offer you more money based on the fact that a lower ranked school offered you pretty much the same amount then more power to you.

i don't think wustl is a much better school than uiuc, in terms of their top students' ability to get jobs, but i think top students at wustl have much more access than UIUC does to job in primary markets other than chicago.

washington owns St. Louis and places in Chicago and other markets. UIUC owns Urbana Champaign and used to place in Chicago

think about it...UIUC places about 63% of their grads in Chicago...much higher than any school...So the Chicago market is full of Illinois Alums...i highly doubt that they will ever have a problem placing in chicago...Go to any top law firm and you will find an Illinois Alum
