First, I visited Drexel for admitted students day so I explained what I liked about Drexel compared to the other schools I was admitted at. Then I listed the schools I had been accepted at (all ranked higher than Drexel) and the scholarship $$$ they offered (all offered less scholarship $$ than Drexel). Finally, finished off the email requesting more scholarship $$$.
Its not that hard. There is not a magic phrase or anything. Just explain your situation, what you like about Drexel, and ask for more $$$. Remember, these law schools want us to attend, they are in a sense recruiting us.
