Can anyone answer this honestly, rather than in a self-interested, "one less person in the held group" way? If I don't anticipate attending CLS without scholarship money, which is rather unlikely since I've been held for obviously non-YP reasons, is there any sense in waiting out a possible acceptance? Would a CLS acceptance be useful for negotiating scholarship money from MVPB? Would it be any better than a U Chicago or NYU acceptance for doing so?
I honestly would not expect that an acceptance at CLS would be any more valuable than an acceptance at Chicago or NYU.
I think that it is easier to use money to negotiate money than it is to use an acceptance to negotiate money.
