I negotiated up from $4k/year to $10k/year with a marked GPA increase (dean's list) and better offers from other schools (I think at the time I had $24k at Alabama, $22k at Wake and $35k at Minnesota)

Their website for the waitlist says to send it via e-mail and provides the address.

Does anyone remember where in this thread they posted historical tuition prices for the last few years? I'm curious to see how much they inflate it every year, but I can't find that information?

Am I just crazy? :?:

I've been using 9%, because i believe its been pretty significant the last few years - fluctuating between 8 and 10. I don't remember what data I used though

That is pretty ridiculous... You confirmed what I remembered as the worst-case scenario. That's another $10,000 over the course of three years.

Why send it two weeks early and lose out on all the interest that you would have earned on that $500? :wink:
