Long story short (and it is a really long story)......my son applied to this school on the 24th of September. He was accepted the first or second week of October. He also received a merit scholarship at that time.
He has applied for 2 more scholarships and we don't know how much he will get, but we do expect something.
Does it hurt his chances of an amount if he accepts before the offers come in?
I know that might sound strange, but I keep reading of people who get all their scholarship amounts/offers and don't enroll and then the school comes back and offers more to get them to come.
We don't have a lot of wiggle room due to the dates. He would start Jan 7th. We are meant to pay the dorm and enrollment fees by November 1st!
I don't need to barter for more, but I want him to get the max they are willing to offer now to come through.
This might be a really dumb question, but humor me.
