Dumb to ask for more scholly $ if none initially offered?

Thoughts on this?

There are a few schools where I was admitted without any scholarship offer at all. Is it pointless to ask for money if none was initially given?

My opinion on this is that it can't hurt...and it's worth the minimal effort even if there is minimal output. I just don't see why not, I guess. And it worked for me undergrad, so.

Has worked for me this cycle. Got some $ from Michigan after initially not getting any. I say go for it, it can't hurt to try. There is the potential for a lot of upside for very little work. Good luck!
