51% Need

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.
-Pete LaFauci, cfo solutions

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.

For me, I am going back to college myself. My family and I just moved to Madison, Wisc., where I am starting a finance Ph.D. program. I was previously an engineer in Rochester, so I am definitely not doing what I envisioned!
