In my LOCI to GWU, would a significant scholarship offer to William & Mary be something to mention? For example, "Although I have been offered a significant scholarship at the College of William and Mary Law School, the George Washington University Law School is my first choice because...etc."
Or, are they too far apart in the rankings to be considered peer schools? Also, I will be sending one to Notre Dame, a school closer in ranking.
This is a great question. In general, I've heard conflicting advice about whether we should mention our other acceptances at all. What are people's thoughts?
FWIW, on Michigan's Waitlist FAQ, they specifically say not to. "If you are on our waitlist, we are already well aware that you are an appealing candidate with much to commend you. So telling us that other schools think that will not help your candidacy."
