This actually got a brilliant answer in around pg 20? Obviously your goal is something that may sound greedy, that being said you should be allowed to ask for it. To temper the crazy number, really think about the number you would need to consider attending. Say it's 90k. Since negotiations are a back and forth and you never want to actually show your hand....
Thank you for your response. After much thought I believe an offer of 95k would make ABC university a top choice for me, however if I got a full tuition scholarship I would be hard pressed to find a reason not to submit my deposit and withdraw from other schools immediately.
ETA: Asking directly for a number is one of the strongest negotiation tactics there are. I believe there is a trick answer that I cannot figure out the wording of. Something to the effect of, it is hard for me to put a monetary value on what I believe myself and my talents are worth.
