Brown University is getting rid of Student Loans

    We had a different experience. I thought Brown's aid was very generous. For my kid, their offer was lower than only three other schools: MIT (amazing aid), another Ivy, and a named scholarship from Williams. Brown was above everyone else on the list, including yet another Ivy, a few LACs in the Amherst category, and two big universities. Furthermore, Brown would have adjusted their numbers based on competing need-based offers. I agree with earlier posts in that the change in Brown's policy affects student loans, which can make up to a $5,000 per year difference in aid, ie, Brown is now covering that $5,000 instead of asking students to get loans. That's not small potatoes in my book.
