I do not understand their reasoning here haha I would put down my deposit immediately if they gave me the full ride that they're apparently giving to 166s now. Not trying to sound bitter -- congratulations to all of you who have gotten full rides! Just so confused.
sorry to hear that, I saw your profile, what is your top option currently out of the choices you listed on there
Currently trying to decide between Minnesota, WashU and ND. Three admitted students' weekends in a row starting next weekend will hopefully help me figure it out a little more!
Nice, best of luck. Just curious, are you from Cali? You applied to a few local schools around me..also, just a suggestion but try to speak with one of the admin directors in person at UMN if possible and say that its your top choice but you heard about the 84k/full tuition for 166s and that you think you merit the full tuition scholarship with your stats (which you do) and maybe it'll work better than email negotiations. Try to do it off to the side as well, bc it seems (based on TLS posts) that discretion, in regard to admissions and scholarship offers, is looked upon highly by UMN. If they are hesitant to let out more money to people that they think, for whatever reason, wouldn't attend then going to ASW will help if thats the case. Hope to see you at minn!
Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely try to talk to them about it at ASW, maybe that will yield better results than email negotiations. And no, I'm actually from Chicago haha. Looking at it now though, I guess I did apply for a lot of California schools. This neverending midwestern winter might have played a role in that...
