I am not at all saying I am better than anyone but I do have more than 8 years professional FT WE and a grad degree from a T14 school and most on LSN near me are straight out of undergrad. Maybe they have incredible softs, but who knows... Just my two cents.

Idk. I'm 160/3.8 and I got 90K. It could be based on my GPA, but I have a lot of volunteering experience as well.
Maybe they like the PI people. I felt my strongest approach was business since that was where my background lies, maybe it backfired. Regardless, my scholarship wasn't terrible, just was hoping for more. I got 90k from much higher ranked school so maybe I can leverage that.
Congrats on the 90k though, that's fantastic. Top choice?
