Got a scholly bump after asking for more aid. Cornell decided to give me 7k/year.
Any chance I can use this to get more aid from Georgetown? :?
By the way, would it seem too ungrateful to ask for even more when they have already increased my aid once? :roll:

Bumped from 10k to 12.5k a year. Not sure how I feel about this as sure it's nice to have 7 grand back in my pocket, but its not exactly a game changer.

Fordham at 1/3rd the cost, Cardozo for free, off the WL at penn if possible. Worth noting I'm an new yorker and plan on working here so Fordham for around 60 grand total isnt bad, but gulc would be awesome. Its just freakin' expensive compared to other options.

Check. Good luck on the penn WL. Gtown is definitely expensive, even with that scholly. That's a hard tossup given your new york ambitions! Will Fordham up that scholly at all?

I wish, I already asked. 30's their ceiling besides for a few full rides which have already been given out. The head of financial aid came to speak to the pre-law society at my UG AFTER she had turned me down for more money so that was a fun event as I'm a pretty active member. I would pay sticker for Penn and columbia, not sure about other schools I'm WL but wouldnt rule em out either.

I would pay sticker for most of the T14s (maybe even all, but that's because I'm confident of my ability to land a job). Did the lady try to avoid you at all? That's too bad about their ceiling. You might be able to still try and leverage if you get in off the WL at another school, or get something with money (like Vandy or Texas with $$$).

Haha no I didn't introduce myself till after the event and she said something along the lines of "Oh, I'm sorry I had to deny you." to which I answered "Don't worry, Your not the first. I don't take it personally." We both laughed.

I already had 90K each from vandy and ucla and they didn't budge. Pretty sure its not changing, but I guess never say never.

Damn, that's totally nuts. You could try taking the 90K to Gtown and and see if they'll bump you up...?

True story mate, hopefully you get in off a waitlist somewhere and can use that to leverage more. What's your planned school of attendance as of today?

Thanks man. Giving myself till the 3rd (second deposit date) to make a final decision, but I'm leaning towards Georgetown. And what are your plans?

Georgetown for me mate. I'm pretty involved in government stuff as is, so DC is the city to be in. I've got a pretty decent scholly from them, so I'm looking forward to this! Let me know what you decide!

Probably withdrawing. FWIW, GULC has been very cooperative with my financial situation. I'm not at all well off and have demonstrated my extreme hardship and they've been willing to remit parts of the deposit payments, etc. I know people had problems with them earlier in the cycle but I have nothing but positive things to say.

Not quite. I got that change, and then was informed that the class was full shortly after. I did get in off the WL a couple weeks later. It's definitely a good sign! :) Also, could somebody please link me to the facebook group for admits?

Woops, posted on the wrong thread. Just informed the waitlisters that I got in (should I feel like an ass? I feel like an ass.. I'm on enough waitlists to know their pain).

Anyway, yeah: just got in, and with a pretty solid scholarship (particularly given how late in the season it is). Quite excited. :)

Not that solid! I don't want to list the amount in case it would be an identifying factor for any admissions people browsing, but it would cover a substantial chunk of tuition.
