Also, excuse me if this is an obvious question, but do people still negotiate scholarships after they've put their initial seat deposit in? Or would I have to do all of this before the 4/15 deadline?
I would definitely try to negotiate if you're getting better scholarships from higher ranked schools. Just state in your request the BU is your top choice but you are finding it difficult to justify the financial commitment. and attach the higher offer scholarship from the comparable school. I'm not sure how negotiating works post deposit, though I know schools do apparently negotiate. Just tell them you are going to multi-deposit
