Nope. Received a short and unsweet "no."

U of H just had roughly $10 billion cut from its funding for the 2012-2013 year. Probably not helping the scholarship situation.

I think he meant 10 million. The entire state budget cut was only 15 billion total.

So my current status date changed to file in review as of 3/9/2012 and it's been like that for a couple of hours. Interesting since it's the 8th. :lol:

Finally heard yesterday! I'd nearly given up. Got an accept, but not sure about $$$ yet. Once I find that out I'm pretty sure I'll withdraw pretty soon so count on one potential spot opening soon :)

Haha no, it was just short. Basically "I am not able to increase it. Let me know if you have any questions."

Um yes I do, why the hell not?

Still pretty weak though.

So does this mean they don't negotiate at all?

My status checker showed under review 2/10, but the date changed to 3/8 yesterday. Still under review though. Any ideas of what this means? Maybe I'll hear back today? ......hope so

Probably not, I used my weakest offer. I'll try again later with my better one and see what they say.

So I am assuming that if I was accepted in late January and I didn't receive a scholarship yet, I won't be getting one.... :(

That's the assumption I'm working with. I was accepted Feb. 3rd. I think they do matching scholarships, though.

I'm going with that assumption as well.

I'm giving them two more days then I'm going to send them my other offers and see what their move is.

Haven't gotten it yet, where are you?

Is this a harsh stip?? Pretty sure my Baylor one is 2.75


Found this from last years thread FWIW

Any one know if admissions office is out for spring break? I want to negotiate my scholarship this week and I don't want to send the e-mail if it wont be checked till next week- buried in a pile of other e-mails.

Make sure to check out Montrose if you like a neighborhood with "character."
