Negotiating a better financial package


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with/insights into negotiating a better funding offer? One of my acceptances so far mentioned that they would consider attempting to match other department's offers and I'm wondering if this is conventional. What's the best way to go about requesting more $$$? Would doing so at a department that didn't offer matching be seen as greedy and possibly spoil your relationship?

Here's a list of a few other discussions on this same topic.

A point that I will add to the discussion is that schools are less likely to negotiate unless they view your other offers as being real competition. Meaning that if you are comparing multiple offers, they should be from peer institutions and you should also give consideration to the cost of living in each location. Best of luck.
