So, I'm in at a T3 (now a T2) with a substantial scholarship of 3/4 tuition. I'm also in at a T2 (strong regional) that gave me no $$. The two are in two different markets (4 hour drive and different states), however mobility from the former T3 is pretty solid to the market of the T2.
My top choice is the T2, but the debt difference is 40-50k. I'm still considering taking the cash at the former T3 anyway... so is it unethical to still try and get some $$ out of my top choice? Their employment stats aren't horribly different (6% gap in employment at graduation), so I think I can construct a reasonable argument for getting some minimal money. Or should I just keep my mouth shut and just make my decision without trying to negotiate more cash?
Sorry for being really vague with the schools.

I think it is fine to ask for more money after seat deposits (though maybe not effective). Most schools allow you to double deposit for the first deadline (confirm this, because other schools expressly forbid it). As long as you are conforming to their deposit rules, I don't see any issue in trying to negotiate.
