Bama's creeped down my list a bit since my Minnesota offer, but I'm not discounting it as an option until I visit Minnesota to see if I like it enough to throw down an extra couple thousand in COL and brave the cold for three years.
What kind of competing offers did you share with them? Did they match another offer that you have or were they just lowering the stipulation because you asked them to?
I didn't mention any specific stipulation that I'd want them to change it TO (which might have been my problem), but I gave them three examples (Washington & Lee 3.15, W&M 2.0, and Wake no requirement). I now also have the Minnesota scholarship with a 2.5 requirement, but at the time I didn't.
