poll conducted 8/20 – 8/21


Financial aid should be need-based … scholarships are merit-based. Both could be provided to get a student to the overall point of paying for college.

Merit first, need second. Those who merit aid and need it, should get it. On the other hand, if you don’t merit aid, even if you need it, you shouldn’t get it. To do otherwise would create a system without personal responsibility and accountability.
