Has anyone who tried to negotiate scholarship money and was told that they wouldn't be able to make a decision until after the Apr 15 deposit deadline heard anything back?

On hold since February I think. So long ago I can't remember. Just missed a call from Cardozo and message said to call them back. Lleft a message so now we're playing phone tag. Obviously not an acceptance. What's up with this??

When were you guys called? I just would like to know if the times are random or if I should know to have my phone near me at a certain time.

Thanks for all of the reporting by you guys!!!!

I just got a call from Cardozo asking about my other offers today, stating they'd give me a decision in a couple of days (I was WL'd back in January)

Just to clarify - you were WL'd for the FT program?

I was held in Feb. not WL for FT -told they would take another look at my app in April. Got a call today around 4pm on my voicemail and talked to Cardozo around 6:30. They wanted to know how my cycle was going, did I deposit anywhere and if financial assistance was a factor.

Yea I would agree. Also really surprised we talked money considering I wasn't accepted initially or even as of yet for that matter. Was told they would get back to me in the next couple of days.

You think this week would be a smart time for an LOCI? I have one written that I've been sorta waiting on sending...

Or you reckon save it for later because they are probably just reaching out to those first on deck (aka high numbers)?

I wouldn't wait, send it it now. Your LOCI will be there as they start looking at WL candidates. If you will def go then let them know. You can PM me for phone call conversation if you want. Good Luck!

I am trying to negotiate but haven't heard anything back since the deposit date.

Have you heard anything?

i was held and got the call a few days ago asking about my interest. When they asked about scholarships I pretty much just said, "yeah, its a big deal... I have gotten big scholarships from other schools in the region and COA is huge for me"... I wasn't quite this blunt, but I figured why should I give them the impression that if they gave me no money I'd go-- when I won't. Any thoughts on this?

i think honesty goes along way. I think I would have done the same had I been in your position.

are waitlist applicants even considered for scholarships what about in 2L and 3L if they do well in school?

I agree with ^. I'm on hold as well, and if they contact me, I'll have to tell them the same thing.

I was pretty honest as well. I told them I put a seat deposit down at another school and the woman said "Ohh". I was kind of surprised by this response and explained schools have deadlines and I have not been accepted to Carodozo so of course I needed to send in a deposit. I mean they know the process. I also told them it would take $ for me to accept Cardozo at this point which is the truth. If this causes them to reject me at this point I am fine with it and would rather let the spot open up immediately to someone that wants it at sticker.

I just got off the "hold" list as well via phone. They didn't mention any $, but perhaps there's an offer in the admit package or email? Congrats to everyone else who got off "hold"!

Can you clarify if you're getting off for May or falls starts?
