SarahEP Posted March 27, 2017 Share Posted March 27, 2017 (edited) Here's the situation: I've been admitted to two very prestigious (and one somewhat prestigious) programs in my field. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of funding to be had in this degree at the masters level from what I understand. Two schools are offering me the same amount in scholarship funding (it's around 25% of full time tuition.) One of them, however, allows students to enroll part time and maintain their scholarship funding. The third school is offering me a larger dollar amount, but they do require full time enrollment so it doesn't make a huge difference to my decision at this point. If the school that allows part time enrollment were to increase their funding to match it, though, it would definitely make a difference in my ability to attend/take more credits. I've seen people say that if one place offers you better funding, you should present that package to your other schools and ask them to match it. Is this true for masters students or just doctoral candidates? If it's something I could try, how would I start that process? It seems unwieldy to call a financial aid office and say "I would like more money please." I mean, wouldn't we all?
