Negotiating/Leveraging Financial Aid Packages


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right topic section, but I just wanted to get everyone's input/experiences with negotiating financial aid packages. More specifically, using funding from school A to negotiate a better funding package from school B by expressing strong interest in school B.

For example, my friend got into medical school X with a full-ride. He then found out that he got into his dream school, medical school Y, but with a smaller scholarship. He told school Y that they were his dream school, and that he got the full-ride from school X. School Y eventually gave him the full scholarship.

Does anyone have any experience with this, either first-hand or through hearing from a friend? For what it's worth, I'm deciding between Master's programs, not PhD's. And if so, how did they go about doing it? E-mailing the department chairs, POI/professors, financial aid department, etc.
