I apologize for not reading through the stuff you had posted. I know university life can make it tough to eat but it is possible. You can't/shouldn't do SS on top of all that other stuff if you in a caloric deficit.

We see this a lot with parkour people. Their bodies are used to a higher translation in squat-similar movements so their DL usually starts out significantly lower than their squat. It is much easier for them to learn squatting form and rocket their strength up in that lift before the DL.

Usually, though, if done properly, the DL catches up and surpasses the squat in time, as you would expect.
