Too early to negotiate scholarship offers?  [#permalink]

Hey guys, I got into McCombs with 35k and USC with 85k in scholarship. My post-MBA goal is to be a PM in tech so both schools are somewhat a fit (Mccombs even more so). Right now I am inclined to go to McCombs, but it would be great if I could have them match USC, even though they are a tad bit higher in the ranking.

How do I negotiate scholarship? End goal would either be that USC gives me a full scholarship or McCombs a half scholarship (McCombs full would be beyond great, but I doubt I can pull that off).
Also, is it too early to negotiate? Should I wait after New Years to start the negotiation?

Edit 1: Should I initiate the negotiation via email or a phone call?

Edit 2: Long term I want to stay in the west coast, specifically work in Sillicon Valley as a PM for a FAANG company. I wouldn't mind working out of CA for a few years to gain experience to be able to break into the Valley, but long term goal is CA. Is USC or McCombs better in this regard?

Hi MbaConfucius!

Wondering which school you ended up choosing. I applied to schools in R2 and imagine that I might be in the same boat with McCombs vs Marshall. I already received admission to USC with a sizable scholarship, and I am thinking about requesting them for more. I live in San Francisco, and want to move back to SF post-MBA. I also applied to Haas part-time but I'm not sure how that will turn out with all the uncertainty looming around EAD for H4.

Thanks,
