    Unfortunately I wouldn't qualify for it, but I just thought it was great how schools like MIT give out these scholarships, or how Stanford offers free education to those who make under 125k U.S. Dollars! It's incredibly nice of them to do so.
    It's $75k for MIT. Stanford is $125k.

    Stanford would only do that for US citizens
    Ah yes forgot to mention that. But at least the international students could still apply for these full-ride scholarships. However, I don't know if the committee would favour domestic students over international students for them. Never been through the scholarship process so not very familiar with how it works for overseas students hm

    If you apply for that at Stanford, they take that in to account when deciding whether to actually admit you (and I can't imagine it's a positive so..)

    "For students with a family income under $75,000, the Institute ensures that scholarship funding from all sources will allow them to attend MIT tuition-free."

    And this shows that even $75k households still have to make an $8k contribution.

    Can't speak for all of them as I didn't apply.

    I know MIT doesn't care if you're intl or not. Princeton not too sure, Stanford definitely cares if you're intl

    Idk cause I didn't apply for aid

    It's a bit of an urban myth that students from averagely well off families don't have to pay anything, you have to be very poor to get a full ride.

    Very true. Only school I can see being an exception is Stanford for domestic students. The only kid I know who has received a full-ride scholarship from MIT has a family that makes well less than $30k a year.

    Yeah but that's standard. The contribution usually involves working during term and doing some summer work.

    Perhaps, but it's not really full-ride is it. I can't imagine the poorest UK students being told they had to earn £5k pa just to go to uni.

    Even though the quote was meant for Student403, I don't see my opinion for schools I was not accepted to changing. (i.e. Columbia)

    Yes, I am incredibly disappointed, but I don't feel entitled to acceptance, and I would not say I am one of those students who say "Well it's your loss Columbia! I never liked you that much anyway!" Because I do not look at it as its their loss.

    I think it's more just acknowledging the fact that while yes, I might have fit the university well, they found somebody who fit THAT certain environment better than me. Who could contribute more to the university environment than I could. Aka the best of the very best. And at the end of the day, it is comforting to know that they chose someone else over me because perhaps they will contribute more to that university than I will be able to, and my passions, personality etc might be better suiting to another USA (or UK) university
