Depends on how much you value $100.
Your chances are basically 0. However, would it help you sleep easier to know you wouldn't get in rather than assume and wonder?
I applied to stanford with every expectation that I would be denied and I was waitlisted with a kind word from Faye. I didn't express continued interest in the spot in June after my SO had already committed to a school in new york, so I don't know what would have happened if I'd pressed it, but I'm glad I applied regardless. (then again, my grades were higher and my LSAT lower).
