absolutely none. I tried to go around finaid (who are totally unyielding) to admissions and they didn't budge.

I called and explained about wanting to make me an informed decision. They got me my answer the day of the deadline.
Do keep in mind that you need to accept your award before the end of business hours on the day of your deadline, k? Because if you try and logon at 9 p.m. you will be out of luck and the money will be on the table for other students again. I learned that in one of my many, many phone conversations with admissions & financial aid.
