No, especailly in the context of a good Why X letter that clearly outlines your reasoning.

idk, that maybe the schools talk to each other & would ruin chances at other considerations, or that they'd give me less aid cause they know I like them

@philly I'm already in but I'm just sending updates! but thank you :) congrats btw!

Thanks!


If you are already in that changes the equation somewhat. I don't know that you need to volunteer that information. The way you might use it is if you have a bigger scholly from a peer school and say "I'd rather spend my time at X Law, but Z Law gave me twice as much money".


Just my two cents.
