Does accepting early hurt your Merit Aid offer?

Does accepting your offer to Rutgers now hurt your Merit Aid later?

I’m not totally sure about Rutgers but I do know kids who have waited out till the last minute to accept their offer in hopes of the University increasing their aid. At the end, closer to the May deadline, a few kids I know received an increase in their merit aid to entice them to come. It can’t hurt to hold off till the end of April/beginning of May to accept your offer.

Have you received your merit offer from Rutgers? My daughter has been waiting but has not heard anything yet.

still nothing. I heard it comes out in March?
