Where ya from?
Also, how generous is UT usually with money? I know they have a matching policy. Have they raised their initial offers significantly to match? And when they do match, what do they base it on? Like would they match the $$ from like SMU because its geographic competition, or would they only do it to a school like Vandy, who is actual competition in the rankings
The latter. From my experience they don't give a shit about SMU/UH, and it's pretty difficult to get enough money from Vandy to make it cheaper than UT. UT is generally fairly stingy with negotiating, but they open up a lot after the first deposit is in and they know exactly who they need to hit their numbers. Never stop asking them for more money, you've got nothing to lose.
