I was admitted with full rides to all lower-tier schools in NYC that I applied to (Hofstra, NYL, Pace) but wasn't offered a penny from Brooklyn. I know that's not exactly the best leverage to negotiate with but the idea of taking out +$150k in loans for Brooklyn doesn't sound too good.
Yea it's definitely possible. You're right that it's not the best leverage to negotiate, but it's still way better than nothing. Just write a good scholarship negotiation email, and I think you'll have a decent shot. They might not up their offer too much, but I think the worst thing you can do is not try negotiating at all
