Agreed on that....got the same scholarship, and I got much better offers from both lower ranked schools and significantly better ones. Was expecting a lot more. Weird.
Do you guys think they are worth negotiating with to use as leverage with other schools? /do they negotiate at all?
I found a really useful resource to know whether or not a school negotiates. Just look at their ABA required disclosure for admissions. It says how many students are paying full tuition, over half tuition but less than full, less than half, and so on. Here it is for American: http://www.wcl.american.edu/admiss/docu ... report.pdf
As you can see on the chart, the median grant amount is 10,080, and the 75% percentile grant amount is 15k. So if you got an offer of 15k from the school, it looks like you don't have a big chance of getting much more than that.
