I have always viewed it as approx 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%+ of tuition respectively. I don't think there is a hard and fast rule.

If we're talking a T14 where tuition is around 45k/year
$-30k total
$$-1/3-1/2 tuition
$$$-3/4
$$$$-full tuition

these are just what I use but it seems pretty close to most people's expectations.

I understand I'm having a really bad week, but why I am completely missing the point of this thread?

Try moving to New York and losing your keys, having your toilet break, and knowing approximately one person.

Life is so much simpler in the Midwest.
