In at W&M - scholarship question
« on: January 22, 2007, 04:19:16 PM »
  Got the mail today. Offered $5k. I was expecting with my numbers [166 (159/171/167) /3.96] to also get a waiver of non-resident tuition. Does anyone have any experience dealing with W&M. Does anyone think negotiating this is possible?

No, probably not. I am surprised though, with 171/3.96, you should've gotten some more money...

i don't know. if you're really serious about W&M, and money would make the difference, then you can always try to get an in-state waiver. Especially if you have acceptances to higher ranked schools/better scholarships.

but i wouldn't do it if you're not seriously going to consider them.

yeah if you're serious I am sure a number of people who have been offered the fellowship will not take it so you could probably snatch one of those up.  This may have been a form of scholarship YP.

That's what I figured. I'm really waiting on Boalt. Any problems there and I'll try to work them. I do like W&M quite a bit, but if I can get in at Berkeley and can afford to live there (3kids).....

as a sidenote I have been told that Williamsburg is very family friendly.  I believe there is at least 1 poster on LSD who is at WM with kids.

I don't think it's YP. I received a decision today with in-state plus the Graduate Fellowship ($4000 stipend, 3.0 GPA, 8 hr/wk work requirement), and a $5000 scholarship. 173/3.9
