Well, this is primarily a customer-to-customer forum. So if you're looking for advice from other customers on what might be possible or whether you're being reasonable, you've come to the right place. (though you have posted on a board reserved for prospective customers to post questions to existing customers)
I've never heard of Dreamhost giving a student discount. I wouldn't hold out much hope here, but you could always contact support for a definitive answer.
I don't think Dreamhost has ever offered promotions to existing customers, though I guess the current PS rates are marketed as a promotion.
What do you mean by "remote access"? You don't get VPN to your server for free, and we can all already SSH to our servers.
This is probably something that you should submit to support, though I'm sure there will be some who can take some guesses. You're running vbulleting, so the answer probably depends a lot on your traffic. I see from your counter at the bottom that the it's relatively inactive. Is that true?
Oh, and more concernedly, you might consider very carefully whether you're fully compliant with Dreamhost's ToS with regard to copyrighted content.
