Anyways, I have no offer that comes even close to what WUSTL gave me. I didn't bother applying to many safety schools, and the 2 that I applied to decided they wanted to WL me. So I have no other offers. How do you think I should go about asking for a 3rd consideration? If at all, I do sorta feel bad about asking again. Especially since I feel like I'm getting the market rate, given my GPA. Maybe even above market-rate since my GPA is below the 25th percentile.
As long as you're polite and honest, you shouldn't feel bad about asking for more money. "Market value" is determined by the market - if they don't want to give you more money, they won't.
