    How "full" are so-called "full rides"? Are they just full-tuition scholarships? Or are there scholarships that cover room/board, living expenses, fees, etc. so that the student literally pays $0? If so, which schools give out these real free rides?

    The only "full-ride" in terms of tuition and cost of living is the MD/Phd or service requirement scholarships.

    Other than that, I think most full rides are full tuition scholarships that may or not have a stipend to defray some other expenses.

    That's a "full" "ride" right there.

    She is pretty "full" I'd say.

    The "fullness" of a "full ride" varies from school to school. At some schools a "full ride" only covers tuition and fees while at some others, stipend is also given in addition.
