Thanks for all the inputs guys. Has been really helpful. So now the questions remain:

1. How to get in touch with current USC/Ross students in order to get more insight on my predicament?
2. If I do get into Ross, do you think it might help if I try and negotiate with Ross Adcom using the Marshall admit and schol as leverage. If so, any suggestions on the best way to approach the dreaded conversation?

1. Most schools have admissions ambassadors or club representatives willing to talk to applying students. Reach out to them. If you can't find the information on the website, call admissions.

2. A lot of people on this thread have already said to use it as leverage. Just call the financial aid office, say you have an offer at another school that you're considering, and see if they'll match it or do something. Granted this entire thread is moot if you don't get into Ross.

1. id send emails to anyone you can on the club websites. and ask whoever you speak with if they know someone else that might be useful for you to speak with. id also ask the schools if they have a "welcome" cluib or something to that effect each school calls it something different.

2. id just send an email or go in person if you're in the area. id say something like "Thank you again for the admissions offer. I wanted to update admissions on my accomplishments since admission and request a reevaluation for a merit scholarship. Since applying, I've blah blah blah professionally blah blah blah at the community level. Additionally, I've been awarded a merit scholarship for 50% tuition at USC's Marshall School of Business. I've continued demonstrating? my interest in Ross by connecting with the president of blah blah blah club and speaking with professor blah blah blah. I hope to join the class of 2015 and hope I can be reconisederd for a merit scholarship. "

Thanks. Appreciate your inputs. Luckily enough I am on Ross waitlist. Hoping to make it. Any advice?
