Need some help figuring out what information to use as leverage... I visited Richmond and William and Mary, and I'm leaning heavily towards Richmond, but I would like your thoughts on how to get a little more money from them.

Offers:
Richmond- 30k/year
W&L- 30k/year
American- 20k/year
William and Mary- 8k/year plus roughly 9-10k less as a VA resident for 2L and 3L

COA:
Richmond: 80k
W&L: 110k
American: 165k (I have somewhere to stay virtually rent-free in DC. W/o rent, I estimate it would be 125k ish)
William and Mary: 130k

How should I go about trying to get a bit more from Richmond? Thanks in advance.


Just fyi getting residency in Virginia is nearly impossible if you aren't truly from Virginia. I know people whose whole family moved to VA two years before he/she went to college at UVA and still had to fight to get residency and actually didn't the 1st year... So don't count on it.
