Scholarship "increase"? Does that mean you successfully negotiated with them to increase the amount of their original offer? How did you go about it? I was offered $10k/yr and would definitely go there if they beat Loyola's offer of the same.
Sorry if you already explained; I haven't followed any of your previous posts.
I'm in the middle of negotiating with Kent as of now. I just shot them an email asking nicely if they would consider increasing my scholarship. You could also try calling. I already put a deposit down and you're really supposed to do negotiating with them before you put a deposit down, but I thought I'd try. Not sure how it'll turn out, but we'll see...
Did they reply? I am very interested in doing this too. I believe you can back out even if you put down a deposit; you just lose that money.
They said they are looking over my e-mail and will get back to be soon so we'll see. And yes, you can back out even if you put down a deposit, but you tend to have more leverage if you have yet to put down a deposit. I guess negotiating is pretty normal.
