I am married, and one of my schools asked that I not bring my husband with me to a scholarship recipients' dinner. I kinda feel like that's bad etiquette on their part. I know it's expensive to feed a lot of people, but surely they can afford it. Is this a common response? To me, it makes the school seem much less family-friendly...
Thanks for all the feedback. Maybe I am making a non-issue into an issue. In response to Yanksfan, I'm largely leaning towards Penn State due to geography. While I would love to accept the awesome scholarship offer I got from W&L, my husband is not willing to move to VA and the cost of maintaining two households would negate almost all of the price difference.
I figured it had something to do with that. Oh well. You should definitely send Penn State your scholarship offer from other schools to see if they will match them.
