Between UPenn and Northwestern... scholarship advice

Postby Pierced » Mon Mar 07, 2011 11:45 pm

I want to go to Penn Law, but I got a $50k scholarship to Northwestern and got into their 2-year accelerated program. How can I present this to Penn Law to get them to (hopefully) match this offer?

Dear Admissions dean,

I'm very excited about the opportunity to append Penn State, but financial aid is a large concern for me. Northwestern Illinois University awarded me a 50k scholarship to attend. Can you match their offer?

Sincerely,

Pierced.

I have a friend who leveraged a full ride to Georgetown into a near-full scholarship to UPenn after initially only getting I think 10K a year. They seem pretty willing to negotiate. Good luck!
