No $$$ at Chicago.... bartering strategy?
« on: March 09, 2005, 02:24:29 PM »
Hey guys, see stats below.  Chicago wrote me today to tell me I don't qualify for any financial aid scholarship money (prob b/c of the stupid NeedAccess requiring parental info--LAME).  Anyway, Duke has offered me the $25k over the first five semesters and is in a cheaper place to live and GW is a top IP school and has offered $15k/year.  Any advice as to how to go about telling Chicago this in a clear but tactful way to see if they can offer any financial aid to me at all?  E-mail is probably out, but I'd prefer that actually if it were acceptable.  Otherwise, I assume I'm calling.  Let me know what you've done or what I should do... thanks in advance.

I think there was a "negotiating for $$" thread somewhere, on which people shared their stories for gettin schools to "match" other offers. Most people did it via email, I think.

hope this helps!!

I haven't been accepted to Chicago, still in the "Hold" category, but I tried negotiating with Michigan through email and got nowhere.  If I could do it again I'd try calling.
