常春藤名校的案例"overlap meeting"的意思?

反托拉斯法的案例中,

常春藤名校有開一個"overlap meeting",討論學費獎學金的制定。

但我苦思好久、google好久都搞不清楚這個overlap meeting的"overlap"的意思是甚麼= =?

直接翻是叫做「重疊會議」沒錯!但是重疊會議是甚麼意思?!

有他的由來嗎?還是這個會議哪部分有重疊意涵我不知道...

下面是案例原文:

已更新項目:

ooooh!! You applied one of them? That is amazing!! You are so excellent!:))

可是我懂了這段後,下面還有一段還是看不懂耶......

可以麻煩你告訴我這個例子的意思嗎?謝謝:)

For example, Ms. Foster said, a student might tell one university that a brother was also in college, but in another form sent later to another university the student might note that the brother had taken a semester off. The universities can then reduce the amount of financial aid offered.

    "overlap" meetings to discuss financial aid for students who have applied to several of the schools.

    The meeting is to discuss the "overlapping" applications to multiple schools by the applicants. The term "overlap" is not about the format of the meeting. It is the objective of the meeting.

    Am I happy that I only applied to one of them!

    Note: Ivy league schools never gave out "scholarchips", they do give out "financial aides". All aides are "need based", not "merit based".

    那是說學生可能向一個校說她的阿哥也在上學但是向另外一校說他休息一期. 這麼樣子學校就會減少助學金

    Dude,

    The importance is that all aides are "need based" and you will need to prove you have such needs. Many applicants lie about their financial situations.

    Of course, I did not lie because I do not even apply for the aides.
