Man I dunno this is such a tough decision for me!! Was pretty set on starting in the fall this year...
Anyone have any suggestions???
Bear in mind that if you accept you have zero leverage. They know you're attending whether they offer you $0 or $90k
You might want to ask if you could apply to other schools if they were to find themselves unable to offer at least, say $10k/year or whatever you'd be happy with. They should be able to make a decision on aid early on, still giving you time to try elesewhere.
