Cornell, Columbia, Penn Financial Aid

Does Cornell accept students who indicate that they need finaid and then not give aid? What about Columbia and UPenn?

Cornell University provides needā€based financial aid on a limited basis to a selected number of admitted international students who have applied for financial aid.

Ivy fin aids are all need-based, but how they judge your need varies. For example, for the same application, some schools may decide you should pay $10k a year, while others may decide you can pay 20k.

Yes you can get admitted to Cornell without any aid

Penn and Columbia are more generous
