I just received notice from UMBC today about a merit-based scholarship that they are awarding me. As my first choice is College Park, will I be able to use UMBC's scholarship offer as leverage to earn more money in merit-based scholarship money from College Park? From the cursory search about scholarship leveraging that I made, leveraging depends on the similarity of schools in terms of ranking and other general information. UMBC and UMD seem to be fairly closely related in this regard, so I am hoping that this will yield results.
