Damn. I haven't heard anything yet. Should I follow up? It's been like two weeks......[/quote]
For what it's worth, Cornell also responded to my scholarship negotiation request within two days. They did increase my scholarship a reasonable amount, but not what I hoped they would. Forward, yes, I would reach out again. If you're planning on attending Admitted Student's Day, you should also schedule a Financial Aid consultation.[/quote]
They responded to me in about two days as well. But denied my reconsideration :/ Congrats to those who got reconsidered[/quote]
Thanks y'all. I just emailed them again, fingers crossed. Has anyone had success negotiating with non t13 schools? My other t13 offers are sticker, but I have some substantial t20 scholarships - BU, WUSTL, Vandy, etc.[/quote]
I actually used a scholarship offer from Arizona State College of Law (25). It was a full ride + stipend, and it also is my undergraduate institution, so I discussed how, while academic merit may not be on par w Cornell, a full ride + stipend offer allows me to build on the relationships that I already have established, while also giving me the freedom of pursuing public interest careers/unique career choices that I may not have if I were to attend Cornell at the scholarship I previously had. Hope this helps! Best of luck!
