Hey folks, This seems like it might be a common question but I couldn't find it after a couple different searches. I completed FAFSA in December and have gotten into two Chicago area schools for social work (UofC and UIC.) One provided a small scholarship but no mention of a financial aid letter and the other asks students to accept their spot before the school provides aid info. Is this typically how it works? Is it customary to put down a deposit and accept a spot without knowing if you have aid? Obviously you can secure aid from a lot of outside resources, but I feel like I'm missing something. ~Help a dummy out Thanks!
Hey there! I have been admitted to various universities for a Ph.D. Among them, University A offers me 15,000$ per year and University B offers me 26,000$ per year. Both universities are well ranked, good programs, similar cities... But I like better A, for the professors. Now, do you think that is somehow possible to try to negotiate a little bit the stipend and get some more money? The difference is shocking! Thank you!
