Any 1ls or Alumni still watching this thread? Got in but with very low financial aid, to which I negotiated with them for a small bump, but think I've maximised what I'm goanna get.
Was just curious if (a) UC Davis ever provides unsolicited scholarship increases. For instance, my friends at other similarly ranked schools had increases their aid after their respective schools had their entire class finalised and had some money to spare here and there. Or/and (b), if I can renegotiate a scholarship after my 1L year. Say I do well, is there a chance they'll throw me more money?
Annoyed they took so long to get back to me and I missed the cut-off for all the other scholarships they posted on their website, but at least I got in.
I just recently withdrew, but in an e-mail to me the Dean wrote:
"We are, of course, disappointed that you are declining our offer of admission and $XXX gift aid award (before consideration for incoming student named scholarships and $500 - $20,000 in gift aid for continuing students)"
So I would say there is a chance they'll throw you more money.
