Will a school like UC Irvine negotiate scholarship against a school like U of Alabama?

Want to increase scholarship package at Irvine, from California, and have no interest in going to Alabama. They are both ranked #28, but are in completely different markets and are very different law schools. My application indicated a strong interest to attend Irvine. Would it be worth it send in an application to U of Alabama (have fee waiver) to try and get a higher $$$ and then using it to negotiate Irvine up?

Wouldn't you have a better shot at negotiating with Irvine if you applied to Davis and got a higher offer? Or maybe WUSTL, which is know to be generous?
