Like Brown University, Wesleyan promises financial aid to any student who needs it. For a small number of applicants, that means they will not gain entrance to the college this year because they do not have enough money attend.</p> Mon, 15 Oct 2012 20:50:39 +0000 Elisabeth Harrison 4731 at http://ripr.org
