If you expect to get into peer-or-higher schools, then you really need to wait until you have a competing offer. And you might. UCLA has no motivation to compete with Loyola. When March and April roll around, and lots of UCLA admits with offers have turned them down, they'll have more money to play with.
I'm far from an authority on this, but that seems to be the conventional wisdom around here.
I know someone who successfully negotiated a $25k scholarship from UCLA with a Loyola full-ride as leverage.
And a 4.0/178 but it was the Loyola scholly that really did it. Lol
Yeah...those numbers would almost guarantee a full-ride at UCLA.
