That is 0.5 from being a Pristine. Is it worth the risk of trying for a Sub bump? I am leaning toward not doing it, but it is tempting.

I dont have a scan yet, should arrive tomorrow. The grades are: centering 9.5, Edges 9.5, Corners 8.5, and surface 9.
What are the chances of it getting that .5 on the corners?
Would it be a 9.5 if the surface were a 9.5 and the corners were the same? (thinking the surface may need a cleaning)
How do I label on the submission form that i would like it bumped if possible, but not taken out of the case if it didnt meet the grade?
