@austinmshauri I don't think that increasing the amount of need based aid a college offers results in lower qualty students. Some universities only offer need based aid and it doesn't seem to be hurting them any.
Higher education leads to better employment outcomes and less poverty.
These students still have high scores, and now they have a chance for a college degree.
Could these schools keep the elite together to produce a high end reputation group and preserve the value? Recruiting employers would understand the college choice and value accordingly. Or, are the elite students lumped with the general student population?
