Hello everyone, I just applied to VMI as Early Decision. Out of state tuition is extremely hefty and my family won’t be receiving financial aid. I’m really praying I get a merit scholarship. My mom mentioned that we should change the application to regular decision, so I could possibly bargain with VMI as I have other options, and by being binded to VMI through ED they’re going to give little aid because they know I have to go there no matter what. I’m not exactly sure if that is true or not. Does anyone have any insight or advice?
