I haven't contacted anyone at Cardozo. But from his email to you, it seems like he's also saying more $ might become available After April 15th when they realize who is not accepting their scholarship offers.
But what about that? It looks like he's saying there was no more. Or maybe he means that's when the last of the schollies went out. I do not know. Also why is my font tiny[/quote]
IMO it sounds like he is saying that while it is possible that there might be more money available after April 15th, last year all of the available scholarship money was used up by those who accepted by the 4/15 deadline, so there was nothing available after the seat deposits were in. It looks like they make more scholarship offers than they expect to actually have accepted - for example, they may have a target scholarship pool of $1M, but they make offers above that amount, knowing that some percentage of offers will be rejected because the applicant will choose another school. When all of the seat deposits are in on 4/15, if they see that they actually had a smaller percentage accept scholarships than they expected, and they have some of that original pool left, then they would have some available for negotiations. But he seems to be telling you that there wasn't anything left in the pool after the 4/15 deposits last year, so you don't get your hopes us.[/quote]
yeah, but he told someone else to send in their competing offers...
