Don't ask if you accepted the $80k. Don't let $2k turn into ungrateful behavior because that's what your mentor might believe. $2k divided into 26 paychecks is $76.92 before taxes. Is it really worth your future career trajectory?

I am usually an “always negotiate” person but for $2,000 and you already know you’re at the top of their range, it’s probably not worth it for that.
