this is my first reply... and its to myself :)
I fixed my problem. I changed all my instances of __MVC_SCHOOL_NAME__
with __MVC_SCHOOLNAME__ omitting the _ in the middle.
Here is the final config:
This is all in my skeleton directory.
variable SCHOOL_NAME __MVC_SCHOOLNAME__
2. config/additional_fields: (this is optional I believe)
Client schools name
Random University (my default value)
3. config/additional_help: (also optional)
Enter the full name of the institution that this store will serve.
SCHOOL_NAME __MVC_SCHOOLNAME__ Directories and Paths
Please feel free to clarify the process if there is a better way to do
