I think AA should also be written as African American, and maybe MA NA and PR too.

Yeah sorry, I just remember seeing it recently on a thread in the "Choosing a Law School category" and being confused about it.

I've been wondering this for a while. Is there a standard for what dollar signs mean when used to describe scholarships?

i.e $ vs $$ vs $$$

I've been working under the presumption that

$ = ~25% discount
$$ = ~50% discount
$$$ = ~75% discount
Full-ride = Full-ride

Is that accurate?

I've seen people refer to it as:

$ ~ 1/3
$$ ~ 2/3
$$$ ~ Full
$$$$ - Full with living stipend

We made a Glossary if it helps. Some are very similar, some have further explanations, and some new ones:
