Did Financial Aid Application Affect Ivy League Decisions?
Question: My daughter applied to the Ivies in the "financial aid required" category and did not get in. From information gathered since then, I believe that she probably would have secured admission if she had applied in a " no financial need" category. What are your thoughts?
Unless your daughter is an international student (i.e., NOT a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident), her financial aid application did NOT affect her admission verdict. All eight Ivies are "need blind" for domestic applicants. Some, however, do consider need when evaluating non-citizens.
