MBA Applicants

Any advice for negotiating scholarships in general, but more specifically in trying to leverage admission to Wharton and Kellogg without money into more $$ from T10/T15 schools?

It’s appropriate to ask if more funding is available but very distasteful to name drop other schools in the process. The admissions committees won’t be impressed if you name drop Wharton or Kellogg and will likely find it tacky. You won’t be looked upon favorably.

Obviously the classic situation is leveraging competing $$$ offers, so afraid of coming off as condescending, but I also imagine T10/T15 adcoms know they generally need to pay to get students to choose them over M7s
