As stated in the topic, is there any chance a school offers some sort of scholarship money if one is offered admission off the wait-list? Furthermore, do potential applicants have much if any bargaining power if admitted off the wait-list?

Chance at money off the WL = yes. Some schools more-so than others, though. Last cycle I received money off the WL at a couple schools, but I didn't accept (hence going again this cycle).

I have the same question. I applied to late this cycle, I feel like I would end up getting waitlisted at almost every single T14. What kind of money we are looking at if accepted off the wl?

Out of curiosity, how much? Would it be less than the amount you receive outright with the same numbers?

Well, with the same numbers you are not going to be accepted outright if you were WL'd. It depends on what they need, I don't really have an answer to that. For example, I received $35k/yr from Villanova in early August. Granted, that was with a new LSAT. I hear Emory is known to offer money off the WL.
