Does princeton do the same thing as harvard? Where if outside scholarships cover all of your work-study and what not, you can use up to $2500 of it to buy a laptop?

    That is how I understand it...
    As an encouragement to apply for
    external scholarships, outside aid reduces
    or eliminates the term and summer job
    expectations. The Princeton grant is
    reduced only after these student work
    requirements have been eliminated. If the
    Princeton grant is reduced as the result
    of an outside scholarship adjustment,
    the lost funds may be recovered and
    used toward the one-time purchase of
    a personal computer
