I doubt it, honestly. Especially if they have told you there is not any. They're not going to make an effort to spend more on you when you don't have a reasonable expectation.

I would emphasize your dire financial situation, if one exists.

I would totally pay sticker for UVA's phenomenal employment rankings. But that's just me. It really depends on your own financial situation and other LS options at this point in time.
