~Please don't quote.~ (although why I care I don't know)

Uh... so if anyone is interested in knowing whether they negotiate, I just emailed to withdraw my application and he asked why, and I explained I had better financial offers from other schools and he started the negotiation process for me...? I am still withdrawing my app but yeah. I figure take a swing at asking for more if you feel like it.

Just got my scholarship info today as well. Curious-- did any of you apply for need-based aid? I received a merit scholarship and a need-based grant. The merit portion of my award is very low, though. I wonder if the need-based grant decreased my merit scholarship at all.

I was worried they'd lowball while dangling the shiny new tuition guarantee to distract us.

Yeah, got 50k which is lower than LSN had me expecting but not horrendous for my stats (168,3.63). Still waiting on USC but really hoping they come through for me.

Just curious, outside of t14s, what other schools have been known to be helpful when negotiating at UCLA?

For example, I received almost 3 times as much at Wash U. I know they are ranked one spot lower and in a different location (and also known to be generous), but still... Would this be a decent negotiation tool or nahh?

I'd say so. T20 is T20

I only got notified of my need-based grant today. My numbers aren't stellar for UCLA so I'm not expecting much for merit, but I still wish I could get some.

Anyone know if the email wave is still going tonight? Or when to expect the next wave?

Check your spam/promotions folder.
For some reason all my UCLA stuff gets flagged and sent straight there.

They will give you way more than 50k for those stats lol.

Do you think I should wait for info from USC or just go ahead and start my negotiations with UCLA now using my offer from Wash U?

USC. UCLA and USC are sister schools. They are in direct competition with each other. They would probably be more receptive to a USC offer. Plus USC is fast with their offers.

Got $60K, less than my Michigan offer so hopefully UCLA is willing to come up.

They sent scholarship emails out today. A lot of people got low ball offers.

Another 70k recipient with better T14 and T20 offers elsewhere. Not mad but not a great feeling after a week of disappointing news.

Hi, I am also a splitter with a super low GPA (LSAT 171) and only got half of what you got. Do you mind PM me your stats? I would like to know if my super low GPA is the reason for me not getting much scholarship anywhere....

*please don't quote.

Do you guys think it's worth reaching out to admissions to inquire about scholarship $$ now, or is there likely to be another wave soon?

Also, is it possible that not submitting FAFSA could have taken me out of the running for a merit scholarship? My numbers are good enough that I'd be surprised to get nothing.

Thanks!

Damn per LSN ucla has been pretty stingy so far. Not feeling as bitter about my WL. Hope you all can negotiate for more $$$

I would submit you FAFSA. I actually went to FAFSA today to make sure I submitted mine, Sure enough there it is 1/8/17. No Scholarship information for me yet. Perhaps there will be more information forthcoming. :roll:

Here to join the chorus of lowballed TLSers. 60k, median GPA, >>>75 LSAT. I pretty would need a full ride to consider it, so I may not even bother with negotiation...

low ball offer of $40k. usc is offering $135k. is it worth negotiating now or holding off until they get turned down by some people and have more scholarship money freed up?
