Negotiating scholarship and scholarship increases?  [#permalink]

I got admitted last week to USC with roughly $ of (roughly 1/3 of the attendance cost) scholarship. USC is my safety school (I am based in SoCal, so I applied to UCLA too, naturally), if I get an admit from UCLA, could I negotiate that they bump my scholarship to twice the amount ($$) or full ($$$)??

Generally, how do I got about negotiating scholarship if I have multiple admits without scholarship?
For example, if I get into Kellogg, Michigan, Duke and UCLA, can I leverage admits from "higher" ranked schools to negotiate with UCLA to give me scholarship, or if I was given a partial scholarship in the first place, to increase it?

Thanks!

Congrats for the admissions!
I am in a similar position. I was admitted for two schools and got a generous scholarship offer from one of the schools and no $ from the second. I have been trying to negotiate some scholarship with the second school, but they are not being flexible on that. I would appreciate if other members could share they thoughts!

It really depends on the school some have a no negotiation policy others are a bit more amenable.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with negotiating, as long as you’re respectful there should not be any risk of negative retribution.

Now how much they can do to make up the difference really depends as well. I have rarely seen someone just say a $ and have the school match. Usually the school will ask how much your offer is. What I probably recommend is express your interest in the school but highlight that money is a factor and you have received an offer from a competitive program and then you should ask if there is anything they could potentially do and again reiterate your desire to attend the school. They may ask for an amount of your other offer so be prepared to share this numbers. This conversation is best had via phone or in person if possible but if email is the only medium that works go for it.
