why is it that among the t14, I would be given $90,000 at one school and literally $0 at another? I'm really perplexed right now.
It's because you've bought into a fallacy. T14 is something that was made up on the internet. In reality, the 14 schools that supposedly comprise this category are radically different from each other. CLS and GULC don't have so much more in common with each other than GULC and Vandy or USC, for example.
Having said that,
at 0 from certain schools. You're still considering us, right?
