No response as of yet, sent my email about three weeks ago. I think everyone else is pretty much on the same page. Shame, WUSTL keeps getting more tempting, but they keep getting dwarfed by other offers.

I wonder if they make it rain towards the end like they did last year. I'm sure they can probably outbid a lot of public schools.

Yeah my concern is that the deadline is coming up in a few weeks (a full month before my best financial options) and if I deposit at wustl my apps get withdrawn from said best financial options. Sooo fingers crossed that I hear soon!

What? Why? Apps aren't magically withdrawn when you deposit at a school. Ideally, you'd have all final offers prior to the earliest deadline and can make your decision accordingly. Chances are it won't be ideal. Early seat deposit deadlines and lagging finaid offers (I know NU plans to release scholly offers about a week before Wash U's deposit is due, for example) make multiple deposits a real possibility. It sucks, but that's the way it is.

Edit: Through my creepy forum stalking I noticed your post in that "multiple seat deposits" thread. I want to echo what Tiago said about LSAC's seat deposit reporting date being May 15th. Your TTT other schools won't know about your deposit at Wash U until then. By that time you'll obviously see how awful those alternatives are.

+1

I will most likely be submitting seat deposits to my top two choices so that I can keep my options open and continue scholly negotiating.

You just made me feel a million times better. The language on my offer was really strict and made it seem like the second I make any sort of sudden movement I'm out lol

And hey, one of the schools is Michigan :lol:

No two choices. Only Wash U and the chaff that's trying to lure you away. Wash U is best U.

The school spirit in this thread...

Where I come from having school spirit means not owning anything with the school's name on it.

I love the U and I haven't even been there yet. Praying that ASW and the April WUSTLers sway me in the correct direction :wink:

I tried to negotiation but they either didn't respond to my email or they held firm. After I emailed I got a financial award letter reminding me of my shitty scholarship. WUSTL is garbage.

Haha RB hates the entire state of California. And fair on Detroit. But Ann Arbor is fine. Plus STL is dangerous for a woman such as myself!
