is it wrong that i think i should get all of my decisions because i've been complete everywhere since mid-november and life is supposed to be fair????

Your LSN says you did ED at Santa Clara.  Doesn't that mean the cycle is over for you anyway?
santa clara had this option for ED that wasn't binding, theres no way in hell im going there. i already work in silicon valley and they didnt offer much in the way of money.

You get taxed on what you make.  For example, you make 135k, you actually have 100k to spend after taxes.  So if you had a 135k loan, you would need to make like 200k, which would get taxed, to have enough dollars to pay the 135k.  There are also things like interest that would grow on a loan and maybe the opportunity cost of not being able to invest that money. There are a bunch of ways to look at it.  The bottom line is that a scholarship is worth more than its face value. Does that make sense? 
wow, holydevil, you're totally right, i never thought about it that way. now that just makes schools with money offers even harder to pass up, luckily im kind of a rankings whore so im pretty sure im going to go with the best school that lets me in
