What's extra frustrating is to see other TLS posters who were initially offered $0 from this institution (and who have less leverage) being bumped up to a half tuition scholly after one email -- while I'm sitting here with an initial offer of less than half tuition, and they apparently won't budge.
I have the same question. Got denied today and am wondering if there's any way to ask again.
it heavily depends on the school. I would ask again as scholarship deadlines pass (hence they know how much money is 'free') if you're committed there has been success with asking after the deposit deadline (again they have a better idea of how much scholly money is unused) and again closer to the start of school.
Thanks! What's the best approach in asking a second time? I'm hoping for more from BU. Is it best to deposit at two schools so they know you're still serious about the other, cheaper option? Or just say "I know I asked before and you said no, but....please?"
