I'm surprised this isn't more common. Seems like a win-win for the school...
Alabama not only provides reimbursement, they actually book the airfare and hotel for you ahead of time.
Notre Dame offers a $300 travel stipend to all admitted students (for any visit date, ASW or not), but you do have to submit a perfunctory application beforehand.
Yeah, I am pretty sure Alabama has some former, shady football recruiters working in their law office now... they do a really good job of courting admitees.
I have seriously said the exact same thing to my parents.
