scholarship money
« on: February 27, 2006, 11:07:39 AM »
I have got scholarship letters from my safety, signed by the dean. Is it legal to fax that letter to other schools to bargain for finaid money?

That is what I fear...

Does that piece of wisdom come from past experience or past witness?

Oh God - I was kidding!  Anything someone mails you is yours to do with as you please!  I don't think there's anything "wrong" with what you're thinking of doing, except that, unless you're tactful, it could appear a little crass.  I'd mention the award to the other schools (and there's no problem naming the figure), but I would't necessarily send it unless they asked!

Good luck, and let us know what happens!

Don't do it,  schools will be pissed at you.  You are worth what they think you are worth, does matter what the other school think you are worth.

There is no reason not to do it.  The worst the school can say is no.  As long as the request is polite there can be no negative repercussions.
