I have a similar question. Any chance they would see that you've deposited already and lower their offer before sending it to you? I applied late and will likely receive the offer after depositing (if i choose to).
As to your Q, I think it would be hard to negotiate after depositing given columbia's policy against multiple deposits. Still wouldn't hurt to try. If you're considering sitting out this cycle and reapplying the next, that might be the alternative you can present.. though I'm not sure how convincing that would be.
