Negotiating a waitlist acceptance with another waitlist

Postby noleknight16 » Tue May 29, 2012 11:46 am

I'm waitlisted at two identically ranked schools. If I'm accepted off one, can I use that acceptance to put the pressure on the other? Like "School A just accepted me and gave me 5 days to decide, but I really want to attend school B. Is it possible for you to reconsider my file before I have to decide on School A's offer?" Or is that considered pushy and not recommended?

Doesn’t hurt to try.

You should definitely ask. Might not work but, like the above poster said, it won't hurt you as long as your request is well-written.
