Great, thanks. Who did you address it to?
EDIT: Also, is it worth trying to get them to offer me more? I got a 30k/year offer. While I know that that's at the high end and that they have limited funds, I was still hoping to get a little bit more money, honestly. Problem is I don't have anything to negotiate with. I've only applied to NY schools, and have nothing from NYU/Columbia as of yet, though I do have a full ride from Cardozo. So is negotiating worth it at all at this point?
It doesn't hurt to try, but be aware that they max out at $35k (which is rare)
Cardozo doesn't count - they're not in the same league (I got big bucks from them too)
I'm also in the dark on NYU and Columbia, but I doubt I'll get any money at this stage, to I'm fairly certain I'll end up rooting for the rams
(I'd thank whoever you've been in contact with - in my case it was espiritu)
