    Free Harvard Education (REALLY)

    Please share this information!

    Harvard University announced over the weekend that from now on
    undergraduate students from low-income families will pay no tuition.
    In making the announcement, Harvard's president Lawrence H. Summers
    said, "When only 10 percent of the students in Elite higher education
    come from families in lower half of the income distribution, we are not
    doing enough. We are not doing enough in bringing elite higher education
    to the lower half of the income distribution."
    If you know of a family earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor
    student graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to
    pay the tuition. The prestigious university recently announced that from
    now on undergraduate students from low-income families can go to Harvard
    for free...no tuition and no student loans!
    To find out more about Harvard offering free tuition for families making
    less than $40,000 a year visit Harvard's financial aid website at:
    _http://adm-is.fas.harvard.edu/FAO/index.htm_
    (http://adm-is.fas.harvard.edu/FAO/index.htm) or call the school's
    financial aid office at (617) 495-1581.
    SEND TO SOMEONE WHETHER THEY CAN USE OR NOT. THEY JUST MIGHT KNOW SOMEONE WHO CAN!

    This is an awesome find! Hopefully it will still be around when it's time for my kids to go to college. That's probably just wishful thinking on my part!

    Just what the world needs, more lawyers, investment bankers and corporate raiders that get their MBA's for recommending shutting US factories and sending work to Aisian sweatshops with no concern for worker safety or environmental concerns.

    Actually I've known several Harvard grads, and they were all the smartest and most qualified people I would ever meet - or at least that's what they kept telling everyone.

    The trick here is actually getting *accepted* into Harvard. Kinda pointless if you don't have a stellar GPA and great SAT scores and some other awesome qualification.

    Exactly dangster !!!!!!! I have a high school junior and we are looking at colleges, the key is having "the right stuff" to get accepted to any good school. My son has a 4.19 but needs some improvement on his SAT scores.

    UP DATE! They upped the income level to $60000 with no family contribution! BTW, not everyone who attend Harvard is a lawyer or politician...doctors, teachers and scientists attend as well. I hope that my kids maintain their grades long enough to apply, we certainly meet the income guidelines!http://www.news.harvard.edu/gazette/...30-finaid.html
