Accept admission offer before Scholarships issued? [#permalink] New post 05 Feb 2008, 06:24
I have been accepted to the University of Colorado - Boulder (Leeds MBA) and plan to attend this fall. My question is regarding scholarship funds...

My acceptance email said that the fellowship committee will review my request for (merit-based) fellowship support over the next few weeks. MY QUESTION: Do you think the committe would be less likely to offer a scholarship if I had already accepted the admission offer? More likely? Indifferent?

Thanks!

wait. there's no reason to say yes now - the offer's not going away!

Schools use scholarship money as an enrollment incentive. Don't take away their incentive!!!

I agree, don't accept yet until you hear the scholarship info. Use every leverage you can get. :)
