I was super thankful to be awarded an ROTC scholarship last week. If I understand correctly, ROTC pays the schools that you get accepted into the full cost of tuition. So... I've heard that it makes sense for many schools to throw in room and board to get you to come to their school. Any tips on negotiating this? I've also had merit scholarship awards to some of my schools, so I'm thinking that I can use that as a further case in point. Any thoughts, tips, suggestions? QUICK UPDATE; Just spoke with _______ University and they agreed to include Room and Board if I apply my scholarship to their school. Not my number one choice school, but I'm hoping other schools will follow suit.
