Advice on Financial Aid
Yale has the best financial aid available. In fact, Yale will most likely be less expensive to attend than a smaller, less selective private school or (in some cases) state schools. This is because Yale has a huge endowment and a deep dedication to bringing in students from all kinds of socioeconomic backgrounds. So apply!
If you didn't receive as much financial aid as you might like, call Yale's financial services and explain your situation. Once you are admitted, Yale will do anything in its power to make sure that you can afford to attend, even paying for travel expenses and textbook costs where necessary.
