for those of us who have been fortunate enough to have multiple acceptances, and are seriously considering several schools, are finances a big concern? if so, are you considering trying to "bargain" between the different schools to see if they will match financial aid offers by other schools, or do you think that would backfire? are financial aid opportunities (grant money) basically set in stone or are schools willing to negotiate, and if so, how?

It works for med school and I'd reccomend that you all try it. I was successful in securing more financial aid (1,500 worth in grants), and many of my classmates who ended up at other schools were too. Those financial aid counselors have tremendous amounts of leeway in making those awards. Sometimes, admissions will push for more financial aid for you too, if they want you and they know that's what's holding you up. Once you've been accepted, you can't be rejected for asking for more financial aid.
