It's just a guess on my part, but I think that many schools are hesitant with int'ls that need aid because it's hard for US schools to verify their need. It's too easy for int'l students to hide money, not fully disclose income/accounts/assets/investments, etc. It's no wonder that most schools don't give aid to int'ls. It's too hard to know who really has need.
