Financial Aid Question

<p>I know that no college would ever admit to this, but is it possible that someone is more likely to be accepted by a college if they are not applying for financial aid than someone who is?</p>

<p>I'm applying to some top liberal arts colleges in the northeast (amherst, bowdoin, bates, williams) but not with a request for financial aid. Would this somehow help my chances?</p>

<p>idk a lot about that but im sure that it depends on how good u are and how good is the college...if they need money they will surely take a the one who's not applying for finantial aid out of 2 similar candidates</p>

<p>yeah i would figure that it would make sense to take more people who are not applying for financial aid.</p>

<p>My stats are as follows-</p>

<p>gpa- 3.8 uw 4.115 w
sat- 700v 680m
satII- writing 800
US history 780
bio e 670</p>

us history 5/eng lang 4/world history 4/physics b 3</p>

<p>senior courses-
ap stat
pre calc honors
ap us gov.
ap bio
ap eng lit
ap macroeconomics</p>

<p>I figure my stats are prob on the border for these maybe not applying for financial aid could help me out?</p>

<p>i think u should be ok at those schools if u didnt apply for finantial aid...ur satII bio score should be a little higher but on my opinion ur in...</p>


<p>any other thoughts?</p>
