Accompanying the Chicago acceptance from the waitlist is a 36k merit based scholarship. (expandable up to $68,200 if you start messing with public interest)

I am thrilled - do they have mind readers on staff?. Might have to do with my mentioning that I put in a seat deposit to one of their T6 rivals in NY, but maybe not. Was just starting $$$ negotiations.

Did NOT mention $$$ concerns/issues to Chicago in correspondence or over the phone with Dean Perry, although I've been mulling over these issues these past few weeks, as I'm sure are many others who post on these boards.

Good luck to everyone!

Edit: made some edits; I hope this gives hope to people wondering "do they ever offer money off the waitlists, as the answer is - at least for Chicago - a resounding "yes"

oh man hahaha, that's really creepy, so there must be two possible scenarios:

1) a chi admissions officer trolls lsn and really wants you (in addition to being a LOR fan)

2) you have a mysterious letter opener/LSN troller.

but are you sure different time zones didn't mess up the times that the alleged Chi officer posted?

I have to out myself on that post to your LSN page, Inspector. It was a guess that would look uncanny if it hit, and it hit. I did the same thing to someone with a Northwestern offer a few months back...hit it right on.

I chose a Chicago offer...and I have decent knowledge of what amounts they throw out...
