Tried negotiating with higher offers from higher schools and literally got told I have to decide if Fordham is worth more debt

I've only heard of them negotiating with T-14 offers.

I don't they'll play ball with anything else.

This is what happened to me pretty much. I got a very good offer so I’m still considering accepting it, but would’ve loved to get anothe 10-20k total- that probably would have sealed it for me.

Edit: It was WUSTL, but like the other person said I’ve only heard of them negotiating with t14’s.

Got some need-based moneyzzzz - still going to try and negotiate with them but definitely leaning this way :)

So, I got into Fordham a few weeks back and am planning to go to the ASD on April 15th. Does anyone know if they give travel stipends and if so how to go about getting one?

I also received a small merit scholarship but don’t know how to go about trying to negotiate for something higher (mostly due to the fact that I’ve been waitlisted/dinged at all schools except my safety- and that was only a few days ago). Any and all advice/info is appreciated!

I know they do give stipends. I would just email or call.

As far as negotiating, I haven't heard of anyone this cycle getting more outside of T-14 offers. Fordham is notoriously stingy.

$300 for travel stipend, email the admissions/admitted fordham email before hand to tell them you're coming and from where.

Anybody included in the supposed "big batch" of decisions that went out yesterday?
My status date changed from 2/14 to 4/3, but still not decision.

A few reported on LSN. It looks like they are getting decisions out on apps received at the end of January.

I was admitted yesterday. Saw some other admits on Reddit as well. I had an UR2 date change for about a month before final decision. Best of luck!

Just tried to negotiate for more money again, and was promptly rejected for a second time.

They also told me that they overawarded this year.

So I wouldn't count on getting any more money at this point in the cycle.

Anybody think there's any hope at all at this point for people still waiting to hear a decision?

Really loved Fordham, but they're not willing to negotiate and are offering me much less than higher ranked schools.

And the cost of living in NY makes it too expensive of an option.

As much as it pains me, I must withdraw. Hoping my spot goes to one of you.

Finally there is movement on my application status updated on 4/16 - applying to the evening program - any hope this late in the game?

Finally got movement on my status as well. It's a long shot at this point and few with my numbers are still getting in on LSN but I've got a shred of hope remaining.
