I wouldn't be envious. Right now, I want to do to Penn, but there is an 75k difference in their offer and a peer schools. I would truly be heart-broken to turn Penn down based purely on a fiscal decision.

Yeah...right now based on my lack of email...there's a 67k difference between Penn and a peer school. I hate to turn down Penn for $$ but it's also hard to justify the difference.

I like Penang better than Banana Leaf ... they should have chosen there instead.

Sorry, nope. And I haven't submitted my negotiation email yet. However, I really hope that sending the same financial aid decision email again is not Penn's response to your negotiation attempt.

How many people out there still have no aid info?

I was admitted in early January but have a last name towards the end of the alphabet. My FAFSA and Needaccess forms were submitted relatively early in the cycle as well.

I just want to know dammit!

there are tons of cheap housing options in philly for 500-600ish, especially with roommates- check out the asw thread for more.

anyway, i already live here, but i loved the asw!
