I am in the process of negotiation with several schools right now and my experience is that you should just do it regardless just to see. I actually suggest calling rather than sending a letter, it has seemed to work better for me and they get back to you faster. Just say that you're having a really hard time deciding and as much as it bothers you to say it, money is an issue and anything that UPenn could do in terms of increasing your award would be really helpful in making your decision. Also, make sure to say you're really thankful for the offer you have been made.
