I believe I already know the answer to this, but I want to know what everyone thinks: With it being this late in the cycle, do you think it's worth it to start negotiating a scholarship from a school if I've been accepted there but otherwise haven't heard anything from them? I.e, if I've been accepted to Schools X and Y and School X offered me a certain amount but School Y hasn't yet, should I use School X's scholly to start negotiations with School Y?
The obvious disadvantage to this would be giving School Y leverage to "low-ball it" and simply match School X's offer when they might have otherwise given me a higher scholly, but I want to know what everyone thinks / know if anyone has had success doing this. PM me if you feel it's necessary for me to disclose specific schools' names.
