I have a feeling people are using is rather loosely like: $ - small scholarship, $$ - medium, $$$ - full ride or close....

But if there is a standard I would like to know it too, so I don't embarrass myself when discussing scholarships.

I had a feeling that Candy wasn't really talking just about money when she was making those offers to me. Sounded sorta like a hooker name anyway...

Pretty much.

I think it is kind of like the cost of a restaurant on something like yelp or opentable.

$ - little money
$$ - About half
$$$ - More than 2/3
$$$$ - Full ride

Just tuition. No respectable school offers you stipend as far as I know.

dang, who's giving $80k/year for full rides?

fwiw, I've always thought of $=10k/year as well... $$$$=40k-49k/year which would denote most "full rides"

THIS IS THE STANDARD

$ = 1/4

$$ = 1/2

$$$ = 3/4

$$$$ = 100%+


Round to the nearest value. This is tuition only.
