Harvard and Yale Questions

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Feb 01, 2018 4:59 pm

Hello!

I am a 1L considering transferring to either Harvard or Yale for personal reasons, and I have two quick questions.

1) I remember hearing that Harvard and Yale reduce financial aid proportional to your summer associate position. I have an SA lined up for 1L summer, but I need a good bit of that money to pay off credit card debt and other personal loans. Will the amount I can take out for COL loans be reduced by my SA? Or only a need-based grant?

2) For either Harvard or Yale, do transfers participate in OCI?

You can participate in OCI at Yale as a transfer. I believe that SA income only reduce need-based aid, and you can always request the full COL/COA in loans, as long as you qualify. However, if you called financial aid, I'm sure they would be happy to clarify.

You can definitely participate as a transfer at H as well (and nearly all transfers do quite well). I know that they took my summer job into account when calculating need based aid, but it was definitely not even close to 1:1 reduction in need based aid.

I think if you call HLS financial aid office they'll be happy to answer in more detail.
