doh...on this subject I sent a message to a Dean of Admissions asking for a full-scholarship after receiving nothing. I had been working overnight and at about 4 am thought to myself, "hey, I need money from this school if I'm going to go." I caculated how much money I needed from the total budget figure and not the tuition figure and sent my message on. The next afternooon I looked at this spreadsheet I have with all my acceptances, offers, costs, and Nalp info and noticed I asked for all but $500 of the tuition. Ooops! I sent the letter over a week ago and haven't heard back. I feel like a real dumbass! I guess the worst that can happen is they say no but who does that, who asks for a full tuition scholarship after not receiving a dime? Moral of the story, whatever you decide, plan it out and send your request after you've had a full nights rest.
