Harvard University isn’t going to let Yale and Stanford make any sort of top 10 list without being represented as well. It’s a well-known fact that families with a gross income of less than $65,000 pay nothing at all for a Harvard education, but the university’s generosity doesn’t stop there.
According to Kiplinger, 60% of the undergraduate student body receives need-based aid, cutting the cost to attend from $55,496 to $13,267 for the average student, making Harvard tied with Amherst for the most discounted school on the list at 76% off.
