For reference, both schools are ranked in the mid 60s on USNWR. I will likely get into better schools (GW, Temple) but due to circumstances I am going to remain in my geo area unless I get into a T30 with significant $$ and no stip.
Any other tips on negotiation would be appreciated.

To get the latter goal, you may have to wait until you have admission to a better school (that doesn't use stipulations at all) to force their hand. But there's nothing stopping you from coming back to the negotiation table multiple times.
I mostly agree, esp. with the advice to negotiate away stips. Top 55% isn't great, and would put OP at very real risk of losing their scholly just by performing around median (and as TLS' wisdom goes, one should always assume median - i.e., top 50% - performance in law school). Any stip at all isn't great, but at least top 80% sounds more reasonable than top 55%.
OP can absolutely negotiate more than once, but I'd caution against planning on negotiating more than two or at most three rounds, as people may become annoyed.
