I recently got w full schools from a school and would like to leverage this against a lower ranked school in my area, however, the lower ranked school has yet to send me a notification informing me of any awards. Is it rude for me to email the financial aid office at this point? Or, should I just be patient? Ty in advance

And "wait" means more than 5 minutes before you respond and ask for more. I had someone reply to the scholarship email within 24 hours of receiving it, and gotta tell ya, put a bad taste in my mouth.
I would also suggest not sending the school all the various offers you have. Pick one, your favorite option. Do the math on the total cost of attendance, too. There are situations where despite a smaller scholarship, the cost of living at the other school could still be more expensive due to higher cost of living, etc. It doesn't reflect favorably on the applicant when they haven't even done the most basic research and comparison.
