Sorry, but they are being bigger jerks for only giving me 5 days after giving scholarship info to make a decision.

Can't you just make an "if I get this much money I'm going, if not I'm headed somewhere else" decision? That seems easier than all this freaking out.

Sure, but I am also interested in scholarship matching programs so that is why I am worried. I wasn't trying to cause a fight here, just let people still waiting know that Cornell's office isn't the most diligent out there (yet they are still extremely nice lol).

I called last Wednesday and they emailed me my letter within a few minutes. Unfortuntely, I received $0.00 in scholarship assistance. I sent in my withdrawal email today, so good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back!

After all of that I only got $60k. I would expect more, but only because Duke offered me the same amount.

EDIT: Sorry for being grumpy :shock: I wish you all luck and hope my spot goes to good use.

Does anyone know who we email to withdraw? 51k is just too much for me...maybe my seat will go to one of you!

If thats how you feel. I just honestly thought that they would be close to my Duke scholarship, but I was wrong. It just reaffirms my feeling that Duke is really treating me well.

Why is Cornell taking this long though, its the last school on the list, I need to know if I'm accepted or not because right now my choice is between Fordham and Cornell basically.
