Hi, I'm a Canadian seeking to attend Yale, Stanford, or Dartmouth. The only problem, of course, is the money issue. We cannot afford $60,000 CDN a year. It just won't happen. My father is a dentist, and my mother works at his office. They do make a decent amount of money, but they will be supporting _three_ full time students. My sister is a psych major at a Canadian university so her tuition is under $10,000. Her husband though, who my parents also support, is in the faculty of dentistry ($26,000 for tuition alone). Plus on top of that, they've gotta live. So my parents are already in a bad position. Then I come along, striving to attend an expensive American university. They can contribute $10,000-$15,000 for my education, so there is quite a large amount left unaccounted for. I figure if I can make $5,000 a year working in college, I'm still screwed. The government here will only loan $4,000 for college per year. So, my last hope is to get a massive scholarship, unless financial aid can help. I think I'm at a disadvantage because my parents do well enough, and I'm an international, but I really want to attend one of these schools. It's unforunate that the best schools cost so much =[ So... do you think there's any chance I could get financial aid?

I am sorry to say this, but I don't think it will be possible for the schools you list. If you have great stats (top 10%) of aceptees at a school, you should look below this tier at US schools that give merit money to internationals. You can find info in US News.
