Some big endowment schools like Stanford have "no loans" policies


which means that their aid is all in grants and scholarships that don't have to be repaid. They also give aid to families with much higher income levels than most schools do. Princeton tuition is fully covered for parents earning up to $140K/yr. If you are a student-athlete with parents making $125K/yr, tuition at Stanford and Princeton is free (fully covered by aid with no loan repayment requirements). VT would probably offer you a partial scholarship and your parents will make too much money for a full ride on the academic side. Cornell, Northwestern and Duke have generous financial aid, but not as generous as Princeton and Stanford. The other Ivies that have policies like Princeton's are Harvard, Yale and Dartmouth, which don't have wrestling. However, it is a very helpful tool for recruiting student athletes in other sports (soccer, track) where less-endowed schools usually offer partial scholarships.
