I did, but it was v. UCLA.... it might be worth it to shoot for a small bump. Be aware though that their offers tend to correlate very strongly with your numbers.


A small bump is all I'm looking for, and all I need to complete my cycle barring some really extraordinary acceptances/offers/catastrophic earthquakes.

How do you plan on negotiating? Faxing them your other offers and calling them / email / ?

If I don't have a letter in my mailbox from USC today I'm going to be very disappointed. :lol:

I do not think that you need to fax them your other offers...they will ask for them if they want them. Calling is always more personal than emails, but it probably depends on how confident you are in your phone temperament.

75k here, numbers/cycle in profile. I don't think that's enough to sway me from Penn/Vandy or even UCLA. Probably withdrawing soon.

Well at least not the whole visit season has passed, so we are good. I may come visit if I can work out the schedule. My best friend teaches at Claremont and I promised to visit long ago.

Cool. I can't even list the 5Cs. I know he got the PhD from Claremont Graduate but I don't know where he teaches.

60k on the east coast! Really thought I would get like 30 so I'm pleased. Now hopefully UT matches it.
