Hi, I've read a LOT about no loan colleges like some listed here: Project on Student Debt: Financial Aid Pledges
and how they meet 100% full demonstrated need,
but I just needed to verify it. It just seems too good to be true.
I mean, so if I were to apply to Brown, who meets 100% need and has a no loan policy, would I truly be able to go to school there for basically free? (besides work-studies and student contributions)
I feel like there will be some catch, and I'll get to a college, and they'd be like, "HA! Just kidding!"
So, would these schools cover all of my expenses--tuition+roomandboard+books+etc, or just tuition? Or if I am just accepted to these schools and simply complete the CSS and FAFSA, will I be able to go to college for free?
Please, answer, I just need to clear some doubts and worries. Thanks!
