Using leverage any way you can

My husband was just accepted to Pitt grad school and I havent heard from the law school yet.  Can I let the law school know he was accepted and that they are my first choice, or is that completely not cool?  Would letting them know ruin chances for scholarships, since they would know they can get me with just an acceptance?

I think that simply calling admissions staff would suffice, although it probably depends upon the university.  I know that when both my brother and his wife applied to different schools in the same university, she heard back much earlier than he did.  He simply called the law school and explained to them the situation, and his acceptance followed almost immediately.  You certainly won't have marks placed against you for calling and having a matter-of-fact conversation.  After all, the person on the other end of the line is human, and will most likely be sympathetic to your particular situation.
