Where should I go next fall? / Re: Negotiating Scholarships/Grants

I have a similar situation.  I'm not sure what to do either.  Both are great schools, but I wonder if it would be ok to tell the higher ranked school of the offer and ask if they could offer a scholarship. I've heard of people doing this, but not sure about it myself...

Thanks for the info on UCLA.  I guess I might be out of luck on that school. 

UCLA will pay for URM's flight and hotel, but not for non-URMs.

What is the point of withdrawing if you receive no refund?

Do all of the schools put the reimbursement info in the acceptance packet?  (I haven't seen any of my acceptance packets yet because they go to my parents address!)  Or, do you have to call some of them and ask?

I'm hoping to travel to 5-6 different schools:
Does anyone know anything about travel reimbrusement at these schools?  I've tried to do a few searches.  I've read that Berkeley will pay for your flight if you book through them.  Do you have to show need to get reimbursed, or do all schools do something similar such as paying for a flight?  Any help would be extremely appreciated!  Thank you:)

When you withdraw from a school do they refund your application fee?  If so, I would like to withdraw from George Washington.  Does anyone know how to go about this?  Thanks in advance!

My UCLA acceptance came in a large manilla envelope with no email:)

I'm pretty sure that if you have the application postmarked by Feb. 1st (whether in the mail, or through lsac's service) that you are fine.  Lsac's report does not have to be in by the Feb. 1st deadline, only the materials you are sending.  So, if you're going to do it, do it today!

Wow!  That sounds high, but good:)  It's good to hear that you think it is reasonable to ask for additional for the drive.  And, I did want to ask for a bit more on Friday/Sat. nights, but didn't know if that was appropriate, so that is good to hear as well!

General Off-Topic Board / How much should I charge?

I'm getting ready to begin nannying for a family in Kansas City on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 or 9-5.  They have one infant that is 6 months old.  The mom would like to know how much I charge, so I told her I would check around for the going rate and let her know.  I've asked my friends, and gotten responses from no less than 6 up to $12/hour.  I was orginially thinking that $8/hour sounded reasonable.  I would have to drive 40 min there and 40 min back, so it would be an extra 1.5 hour plus gas for an SUV, that I wouldn't charge.  Could anyone give me an idea of the going rate?  It's been a long time since i babysat.  Plus, should I charge more for additional children or a Friday/Sat. night?  Thanks in advance:)
