hows the financial aid at Princeton? Anyone know what the average fin aid package is? I heard that its supposed to be way better than Yale's, but I don't know if its true..

Yeah, I did the Estimator on Princeton's site, and the aid estimate was way good. The actual number escapes me, but for some reason around $24,000 is sticking out to me as the average aid. Could be wrong, though. I'm sure their financial aid site has that info, or their admissions page.

To anybody that received financial aid - do you mind disclosing what the salaries of your parents are (estimanted)? I don't mean to pry into your information, I'm just worried that my parents make too much money to qualify for any aid, but that full tuition will be a burden. Princeton might say that I don't need any aid, but a full tuition is still a huge amount for my family.

people from families with incomes of over 100,000 dollars can get aid ... it is, as its put, need based (ie if you have other siblings in college private schools etc) ... and aid does not account for the value of your house or properties ...

Be honest and truthful in everything that you do. Although they may not catch you, don't live with the guilt of getting aid that you lied for.

The letter that they sent this summer states that anyone who needs a loan from Princeton will receive a grant instead.

They don't ask for the cost of your house on the aid form, which means you get much more aid than you would at other schools in many cases.
