    It seems very surprising that many would focus their criticism on Harvard which was one of the first highly selective colleges to explicitly adopt the 10% rule by which no one coming from a family earning less than $200,000 would be asked to pay more than 10% of their income for their children’s tuition (data from write paper for me paper writing service). Moreover, anyone earning less than $65,000 would be free which is exactly consistent with your recommendation at a level twice the median income in this country. Such generosity is matched by only a few other elite schools and is likely the result of the very large endowment that you criticize.

    Your statement regarding the unwillingness of some poor students to apply to elite colleges may be valid. “I also wonder how many lower-income families unfamiliar with our elite college system see such huge costs and automatically assume that Harvard is only open to the very rich. ” See research below from Caroline Hoxby of Stanford which attests to this. But the answer seems less to compel Harvard to be even more generous and more to communicate the message to more poor children that the opportunity exists to attend elite colleges regardless of financial background.
