Do Schools Know Your Other $$ Offers?

Postby conker » Fri Jul 14, 2017 10:42 am

Can you bluff or play a poker game with scholarship offers, or are these offers made public at least between schools?

This is not an ethical question but a technical one.

ETA: schools might require proof?

They will most likely ask for a copy of the award letter or a screenshot of it

This is an ethical question and a technical one. It is a technical question that has nothing but ethical implications. Schools do not know offers but they will require proof (in the form of a scholarship letter) to consider other scholarships. You gain nothing from bluffing other than the risk of pissing off admissions officers.

I strictly limited to the technical part (see OP). Thanks for the extra bit, but you missed the scope.
