I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. You're wanting to know if anyone has had success negotiating more money out of GW with offers from BU and BC, or the other way around?

For now, I'll just try to give some general advice on strategy. If you want to get GW to raise their offer, I would first try to get one or both of BU or BC to up theirs, then when they won't play off of each other/GW anymore, take that offer to GW. Pretty much save negotiating with your top choice until you're sure you won't get a better offer from any of the other schools to give you the best shot at having a significant gap in $$ to negotiate with.

Ah, I see. Looks like you'll have to deposit at GW, too, as to lock in your scholarship offer you have to be deposited there by 4/1 (as opposed to 4/15 for BU (also GW's hard deadline)). Don't know about BC, but that offer has weaker negotiation potential than BC and GW anyway.
