Sorry if this has already been covered, but for the financial aid essays (and more specifically, the request to "assess your position for merit aid"), are you guys including specific amounts of merit aid you've been offered elsewhere? I'm late in starting these essays and am basically wondering whether a debate akin to the GULC one (to divulge numbers or not to?), has been launched with regard to these NU ones, or whether people think dropping numbers is too crass for the prompt put forth by NU. Thanks.
I included specific amounts of merit aid I was offered elsewhere. Regretting it after reading rinkrat's and others' posts though.
It's just that I don't have much in the way of leverage at all with my numbers and am looking at sticker for the few T-14s that have accepted me. Also, I don't like discussing my work experience either because it's not substantive.
