checking-in, admitted 12/2/2015

Any ideas about how any possible scholarship for this school? The reputation that I've heard is that they're not so generous.

This actually seems true. According to mylsn the highest scholarship awarded was $60k. (20k per year)

This is true for numerous students who got more significant money from higher-ranked schools. (Including full-rides to WUSTL)

See: http://mylsn.info/oquxl7/

Click the arrows next to American to see the offers students had.



yes I've heard that this school isn't very generous with scholarship-- but I like the location and programs. However, considering both their plummet in rankings and employment, I would think they may change their tune-- we will see. I was just submitted 12/2 and now I just impatient to hear about scholarship and responses from other schools.

Good luck to everyone!

Scholarship email, $20k per year - does anyone know if it's worth negotiating with American? I've received a larger offer from GW

Same here. And according to everything I've read and been told, that is their highest scholarship. I still say try to negotiate if it's a school you really want, but I think they're firm on their offers.

I've decided not to negotiate, because I'm no longer interested in the school. But best of luck to you if you go for it!!
