probably, I mean I don't speak from experience but common sense would say that if they won't admite you outright they probably won't throw any money at you. If anyone has any other epxeriences please correct me.

Are you a splitter?

If so, you could leverage your high number to get money.

A friend of mine got a half scholarship off a waitlist, though he retook the LSAT and increased by a decent amount (2-4 points).

Last year, I got off of two waitlists, and both offered me decent scholarships (over $15k/year), so it's definitely possible.

In the Illinois 2010! thread Dean Pless said that
Last year we were able to offer scholarships to people admitted off of the wait list.
