Raised my offer by $21k total... after I'd already committed to another school and withdrawn my application here. No regrets.

Just that I have been using a lot of exclamation marks of late. Don't read much into them. Took a lot out of me avoiding them in this post.

Denied an increase. I think an issue with their procedure is that the form came out so long ago and you can only do it once. I've received some of my best offers since filling out the form.

Oh well, see ya GW

FWIW, I was able to just email them when I got new offers and they updated my request with them.

Officially withdrew my application. Hope some of the scholarship $$$ I'm putting back in the pot goes to one of you!

Have you also received your tentative financial aid package?

Can't hurt. Let them know you can't attend at this price point and what it would take to get you there - if that's the case

Thanks for mentioning this. The offer I used on the form was just bumped up. I'll email GW now and ask them to update it.

I checked. Guests not allowed in the event. But can obviously hang around in the campus library etc.

I also got the same 18k bump as some others in here. Looks like they're reticent to bump up more than that. Oh well. I'll just go to WASHU for 40k less and a dramatically lower COL

I only got a 9K bump. I have better offers from higher ranked schools. GW is out for me.

Same boat! I got a 10K-18K (somewhere in there) bump, that is still lower than all the scholarship offers I sent them at better ranked schools with better COLs. Granted they have the D.C. angle going for them, but the COL is way against them. Still the lowest offer on the table- without even considering their high COL :/ Will have to withdraw.
