    Do you know that there's a search tool? It's between 'new posts' and 'quick links'. It's very useful..

    Harvard, yale, princeton, williams are the definites.

    Maybe MIT and middlebury - I cant remember... I dont think so though

    Yes, MIT is need-blind for internationals. And also Yale, Princeton, Harvard. I don't really know about the others NoFX mentioned though.

    Didn't know that about williams. What nationality are you? If you are canadian or mexican there are a few more options open to you.

    eta: Just remembered Grinnell is needblind I believe. And offers finaid to intl. as well

    Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT and Stanford are the schools that I know of that gives need blind for internationals since they have huge endowment money, but these schools are the hardest to get into. all schools have less then 15% acceptance rate

    I don't think Stanford is need-blind

    dude stanford is not needblind for intels. Far from it - they're pretty stingy too.
    MIT has an acceptance rate of about 5% for intels.

    Georgetown is needblind but does not give that much financial support to intl.

    Gu is not needblind for intel:D..It's only for American students..And according to someone, there are only 5 full aid per year for intels
  • megtfsmegtfs Posts: 275Registered User Junior Member
    Georgetown states specifically on their website that they are needblind. You do not have to submit a statement of finances along with your application. gwu however, is not needblind.
