I sent them the NYU offer + one from the MVP tier. I'm guessing they won't take offers at schools lower ranked than that very seriously, but it wouldn't hurt to just dump everything you've got in there.
Thanks! That's about what I was thinking. I guess I'll throw Cornell in there too, I doubt it will hurt. Don't know how I can make a decision on this by April 6th. Really hoping Columbia gets back to me before that...
Can't hurt to try. But I don't think Cornell scholarship offer will mean much to them. I tried using my Cornell offer to get some $$ out of Chicago last year, and instead of just saying no, Chicago said something along the lines of "sorry, but we need a competing offer from a peer school to take your request into consideration". Talk about being blunt.
