To all international students asking for huge amounts of aid

<p>ds goes to colgate and they gave good aid for him.</p>

<p>Thanks for posting this! I just have one concern: isn’t it biased towards colleges that grant a lot of aid to a small number of students? I feel like this info would be a lot more useful if the number of international students or at least the % of international students in the student body was included. That said, I certainly found it useful.</p>

<p>@losint I tried doing that but it came out really messed up. But now that you mentioned it I think it really is necessary, i’ll put the numbers now. </p>

<p>Wow, thank you! This must have been very difficult to compile. IMO this kind of info should be stickied.</p>

<p>And just to confirm, the additional numbers are (int students receiving 35k+) / (total # of int students), right? Once again, thank you for taking the time to make this list.</p>

<p>Thanks for the list. I just needed it.</p>

<p>@Lostint The additional numbers are (number of internationals receiving aid)/(total international students).
Basically ever single college on this list gives more than $35000 as aid. Some are more generous than others, like these:</p>

<p>Bates 52427
Colby 50080
Connecticut 49126
Hamilton 49565
Trinity 51003
Williams 54671
Washington and Lee 49860
Colgate 49126
Skidmore 53600
Vassar 47509 </p>

<p>As you can tell: the average aid at these colleges is the highest, bordering $50,000. So the maximum you would be expected to pay is around $10,000. Some students even get in with 100% of the costs paid. But of course all the other colleges on this list promise to meet your full need.</p>

<p>@smilyowl Glad to be of service :)</p>

<p>

Not exactly. It means that the international aid recipients pay an average of around $10,000, but the maximum would be much higher - probably around the full cost of attendance.</p>

<p>@b@r!um Let me rephrase that. The average amount paid for those RECEIVING aid is $10000. Most internationals (60% in the first and 40-59% in the second table) who have received aid were expected to pay only that amount maybe less or more by a few. Those who pay full attendance are not in the numbers up there. </p>

<p>

That’s where you are wrong. At my undergraduate college, there were international aid recipients who contributed $0 and international aid recipients who contributed $40,000 a year. The average won’t tell you about the minimum or maximum. I don’t know why you think it would.</p>

<p>Actually you are right, but I believe the average is a better indicator than the maximum or a minimum. And in the end it all depends on the need.</p>

<p>And since the average is $10000, I’m pretty sure the number contributing $0 is much larger than the number paying $40000. To reach an average of $10,000 using $0 and $40,000, there has to to be 1 student paying $40000 versus 3 paying $0 which is 25% and 75%. </p>

<p>I forgot to add a few women colleges to all those who are interested:</p>

<p>(57.33%) Bryn Mawr - 38671 - 172/300<br>
(84.68%) Mount Holyoke - 32446 - 448/529
(46.6%) Smith - 48681 - 160/343
(38.5%) Wellesley - 54774 - 99/257</p>

<p>Also add Bennington College into that list.</p>

<p>How come Amherst doesn’t make it there? Has a need blind policy for internationals</p>
