I've negotiated with other schools, but the stipend was out of the blue, no negotiating. I attended an open house/Accepted Student Day and I guess that everyone I met with talked highly of me (according to the email, not my thoughts or words), so they extended the offer. Still a bit shocked, as I am at their LSAT median -- just with some years of work experience tacked on there.
