You love 1) them 2) the area 3) your money. If there's anyway they could make those 3 things happen you'd be greatly appreciative, and have a seat deposit in on the hour.

Hah, almost exactly the summary of my final request for matching funds to UT ;D

Which didn't work  :'(
Accepted: Michigan($$), Northwestern($$$), Vanderbilt($$$), UCLA($$), UT($$$), WUSTL($$$), UIUC($$$$), Notre Dame($$),

Attending: TEXAS !!!

On Friday I sent USC my request for more money, using GW's offer as leverage.  Here's hoping.

I was successful on my first attempt to receive a scholarship by using another school's offer.  It was sizable, but still several thousand short of the offer I used as leverage.  I sent in another request to reconsider the offer and was denied that time around.  Oh well, the original offer was still significant enough to allow the school to remain my #1 choice.
USD 2010

Via email for me.  I attached a pdf of my GW scholarship offer.  I don't know if that's the preferred method, but I wanted a quick response.

Well, I failed in my efforts to get any $$ from BU. I still don't understand why they didn't offer me anything because looking at LSN they seem to be pretty generous. I guess maybe it's because my parents have money, but it's not like that does me any good.

hm i'd like to see how that will turn out. I got the same 10,000 scholarship from USC and the other scholarship I got is $22,500 from Cardozo which I don't think will work well as leverage for USC.

If the school turns down your request for a scholarship, is there any way that you can ask for money for 2L and 3L if your GPA hits a certain benchmark during 1L?
