Talk:Need-blind admission

Is there any point in having the list of colleges, given that it totally fails to be exhaustive? Also, it ought to be cited. -Semisomna 21:01, 6 October 2007 (UTC)


Is there an exhaustive list anywhere?[edit]

This page should exist because it is the only remotely comprehensive collection of schools that are both need-blind and provide 100% of need. Does anybody know of any other resource one could use to complete the list? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joshuadrosenberg (talkcontribs) 20:47, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Columbia is now completely need-blind too[edit]

Columbia University changed its financial aid policy. It meets now the full demonstrated financial need of international students too. Link:http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/finaid/enhancements/

MIT wrong Infomation[edit]

MIT is need-blind for all students, including internationals. However, it is not full-need for intl's. Please refer to MIT's admissions page.

Yes, it is. If I'm correct it covers for more than 70 percent of both the Admissions fee AND the housing fee, which is almost full-need. Jjeong12 (talk) 02:23, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Columbia is full-need, but no need-blind[edit]

New Columbia Financial Aid policy can be found here: Link:http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/finaid/enhancements/

Regarding international students: "Though Columbia is not need-blind in its admission of foreign students, if you are admitted then we will meet 100% of your demonstrated financial need. If you plan on applying for financial at any point during your four years of study then you must apply for financial aid at the time you apply for admission." http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/finaid/faq/prospective.php#3

Lawrence University isn't fully need blind[edit]

Lawrence University is not need-blind for international students: http://www.lawrence.edu/admissions/afford/ (mentioned at the bottom of the page, marked with an asterisk) Stryder29 (talk) 11:38, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

So fix it. Esrever (klaT) 12:21, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

This section should be modified and retitled: U.S. institutions that are need-blind for U.S. applicants and do not meet full demonstrated need.[edit]

Most colleges and universities in the USA are need blind and do not meet full demonstrated need. They accept qualified students regardless of need, and meet the need of the more desirable ones, or meet the need of none of them. I suggest adding a section that would be titled: U.S. Institutions that are need blind for U.S. applicants, do not meet full demonstrated need, but meet at least 90% of demonstrated need. This information is available on www.collegedata.com, and would provide information of value to readers, although it will require a lot of research for someone to consolidate this data. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 8.224.6.7 (talk) 15:36, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

US News List of Full Need Schools[edit]

This is accurate through 11 Feb 2013 for US applicants, however, I am not sure which also are need-blind, nor am I sure which schools cover international students.

Brandeis is Listed Twice[edit]

Brandeis is listed as both need-blind and need-aware. Could someone clarify which it is? I'm not sure. sdkb (talk) 17:40, 24 December 2013 (EST)

Georgetown Information is Unclear and the International Information is Incorrect[edit]

Georgetown is listed as both need-blind (for US Citizens/Permanent Residents) and need-aware (for Internationals). According to their website, Georgetown is Need Blind for All Applicants (US Citizens and Foreign Nationals), meets the full need for all US Citizens and Permanent Residents and meets the full need for as many foreign nationals as their international financial aid budget allows.

UC Berkely is NOT need blind[edit]

Someone keeps putting UC Berkeley under the "U.S. institutions that are need-blind and meet full demonstrated need for both U.S. and international students" section. However that is not true: http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/university-of-california-berkeley-1312/paying

University of Pennsylvania Need blind for Canada and Mexico students[edit]
