I was offered a job in healthcare for $X + benefits. The pay is less when compared to my current job, but I wanted to move to be closer to family. I didn't want to leave money on the table so I made a counter offer to increase the pay stating that it was due to a high cost of living in the new city and my current salary.
They then rescinded their offer saying they can't meet the counter offer.
Is there a way I can accept their previous offer or is it now unlikely that I will be reconsidered?
