Said I had until May the 4th to decide. Guess I'll withdraw again already deposited at another school
I just got bumped up as well. Did they say how much the full+living stipend amount is for you?
5k a year
This may be a dumb question but do schools normally only increase scholarships for those who have not yet accepted? I'm assuming they have no incentive to give those who have deposited any more money?
Not a dumb question at all. Better to ask and know. Typically, if you have already accepted they will not bother increasing your scholarship. In certain situations where students are under negotiations with multiple schools, it is possible. For instance, if you deposit at school A, and then peer school B accepts you off a waitlist with a better scholarship, you can negotiate with school A for a matching/better scholarship offer.
