Hi all. I recently went home and visited my high school after my freshman year at Georgetown. I spoke to one of friends there who is a rising senior and beginning to concern himself with college admissions. He has a 1900 SAT and 4.2 weighted GPA. When combined with the fact that he is an URM, I feel as though this is sufficient to make him competitive most places, especially considering the fact that his SAT is likely to improve.
However, he is an undocumented student, and our high school primarily feeds to CSUs and UCs, which because of his citizen status will likely not be best for him. The guidance counselor has not been much help and thus he asked me. I now ask you: in all of your experiences, what private schools offer the most financial aid to undocumented students? I am looking primarily at those at pay for full need, but I was hoping that some of you might know more specifically. For instance, I know Georgetown is fairly decent about this, because another undocumented student from my high school will be a freshman here in the fall.
Any assistance anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.
