I was just about to ask the same question. I got 10k and was gonna try to negotiate more. Any luck, anyone?
I tried and they said no.
Congratulations on your success in the admissions process. We certainly understand that financial considerations play an important part in your decision about which law school to attend. Unfortunately, we are not able to increase the scholarship we have awarded to you.
In assessing your choices among schools, we strongly urge you to consider the terms of the scholarship offers you have received. At Loyola University Chicago, you will retain your scholarship if you obtain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above after your first year. As a result of this liberal policy, over 90% of our award recipients retain their scholarships. If you do fall below a 3.0, you will continue to receive one half of your scholarship, and if you later raise your GPA back above 3.0, your full scholarship will be reinstated.
You should ask other schools about their policies and scholarship retention rates before deciding. In particular, you might ask if they are willing to disclose the percentage of first year scholarships awarded for Fall, 2010 that were renewed in full.
We very much hope that after considering all of the relevant factors, you decide that Loyola is the right place for you. If you have any other questions, please contact us.

So... that would be a no.
