I just ran several NPC to look at aid, and Yale was a strange outlier–much higher than Brown, Dartmouth or Stanford (the other 3 competitor type schools I checked.) I ran it twice to make sure I didn’t accidentally enter something wrong. I thought Yale was usually more generous, not less. All the others schools gave approximately the same amount of aid, but Yale said we’d be full pay. Was the Yale NPC accurate for those who got offers? Because if so, I’m going to have to take Yale out of the mix.
