Any tips on ethically and kindly negotiating several position offers or admissions to schools?

Is the ethical principle different for jobs and school admissions? When you meet some really kind people involved in your interviews, what are some ethical principles to go by to ensure no one is hurt? If you "accept" an offer, is it set in stone? I would like some ethical sources regarding this matter. Sending thank you notes is pretty much the norm, but what else to ensure I don't put anyone in a bad position? Thanks much.
