Personally, I don't think it really matters if you get in or not. That being said though if you're goal is to get in then I would say that not doing rush is probably not the best plan to get in. Therefore, in order to achieve what you want, the only path you have is to go by rush even if the odds are long. So it only makes sense that you give it a shot because the time involved to rush is really not a big time investment.

Well, you can try. If you know going in that it's unlikely you will be accepted, it does help the pain of rejection.
