Some of the most frequently asked questions that arise when considering Harvard as one’s school of choice are the following:
> Do I need to be rich? No. Thanks to the largest endowment of any university in the United States, as of 2006, Harvard guarantees that any student accepted into its programs will be able to attend.
> Can I receive financial aid? Yes. There are numerous financial aid programs available for all types of students and situations. Families earning less than $60,000 per year, for example, would see their students receive full financial funding, and that’s not a loan.
> What is Harvard’s graduation rate? One of the highest in the nation at over 95%.
> Do I need to be a genius? No, as a general guideline you need to rank in the top 5% of your high school class. You need to work hard, study well, and prove to the admissions committee that you would be an ideal addition to their student body.
> What are the requirements for International students? 10% of Harvard’s student pool is derived from internationals. There are no different requirements for students applying for admission to Harvard. Admission is not affected by citizenship.
