i tried searching around a little bit but didn't find much. I'm currently a 1L at a low T-14 paying sticker. Recently got grades back and did much better than expected (I would imagine around top 5% or so worst-case, probably better). Assuming I did around the same next semester (a big assumption I know), is there any chance I might be able to squeeze some money out of the school at this point, or did I forfeit any scholarship chances when I signed on at sticker? Thanks for any insight. Fully expecting the answer to be no but figured it couldn't hurt to ask

Like most things, it depends. Try and find out if it has happened before. Being a T14, they almost assuredly won't give it to you for good grades (though lower ranked schools do this). You might be able to get some if you have leverage (i.e. accepted transfer apps to better schools), but again it depends on your school. I'm told NU has done it before but I have no idea about other T14s.

Generally, no. HYS make you available for their need-based aid just like any other student, but you're not going to get merit aid from anyone. Your reward for transferring up is the privilege of paying sticker to attend their much better school.
