International Students Attending Preview Weekend?

<p>Hey fellow Yale 2014 admits!</p>

<p>I'm from NZ, and I am not 100% set on Yale yet, so I am hoping that the preview weekend will help me decide for sure. My friend told me that Princeton will pay for my ticket to the preview weekend: does anyone know if Yale does that too? I have been offered a pretty heavy financial aid package, so anyone who is getting almost 100% covered, do you know anything about this?</p>

<p>Thanks guys!</p>

<p>And congratulations to all my fellow 2014 admits!</p>


<p>Congrats. Your best answer will come from Yale FA office directly, no? Call them Monday or thereafter.</p>

<p>No, I believe Yale doesn't. </p>

<p>I've raised the same query to my admissions officer and a few other people in admissions/financial aid - the response was:</p>

<p>"Unfortunately, we aren’t able to offer financial assistance for international students traveling to BDDs at this point – we had to pull in the budget somewhere and this was one area we had to sacrifice since the expenditures had the potential of being quite large."</p>

<p>Which is completely fair enough, and quite understandable.</p>

<p>I hope this news doesn't make Yale seem ungenerous or unkind - because they most certainly are incredibly generous and kind. Their financial aid package was absolutely mind-boggling in its generosity and I fully appreciate all that Yale's financial aid office does. :)</p>

<li>And who knows, I think things like this are very much done on a case-by-case basis. Get in contact with <a href=""></a> or your admissions officer Victor.</li>

<p>Thanks everyone! you guys have been really informative! I have emailed them, so all I have to do it wait. I also checked out the admit forum online, and have found that Yale will email people whom they will give travelling funds to. Guess I have to wait and see!</p>

<p>one of my friends (who lives in CT??) is getting costs covered to go to bull dog days...maybe it's b/c they know it couldn't possibly cost them too much??</p>
