Not yet. When I spoke with them, they said they expect it to be released by the end of the month.

Sent a LOCI-esque email in to finaid today about my scholly negotiation. Hope it wasn't too much, but I'm itching for a response. Basically just stated that I enjoyed the preview day last week though.

Side note, looked at a couple apts on Thurs. and the broker was a pretty lousy guy once I told him we basically wouldn't sign on it that day - we're still gonna rent an apartment here, sorry dude.

Can you let me know if they respond with anything about the scholly negotiation?

Just got my need-based aid too. 4K/year.

I submitted the app as soon as I was accepted, but that was after the deadline, so I suspect that accounts for the low number. It's still something though.

How long did it take you guys to hear back about your need-based aid? (I also sent mine in after the deadline, fwiw - got accepted last week)

I actually did the same thing, sent a scholarship loci letter on Monday. Have you heard back from them/did you apply for need based?

Also, brokers wouldn't talk to me until i said I was moving up definitely.

Haven't heard yet, actually just submitted an update to an offer that got increased from another school right before people started to hear - hope that doesn't delay it!

Yeah, I'm hoping that sending in the other offers doesn't delay their response. But who knows.

Anyone had any luck negotiating? And if so how long did it take to hear back?
