"I played golf...I did not get a hole-in-one, but I did hit a guy. That's way more satisfying."

If anyone has documentation or any specific examples of athletes getting more "need based" financial aid than non-athletes - everything else being equal - feel free to give details.

Personal experience.....no help util we had 2 in college at once. On line calculators were very accurate at estimating family contribution. Ivy schools agree to match other schools if can demonstrate an interest.. Really are similar or would end in a bidding war. They also won't give you a package until Dec/Jan. Financial aid is higher then most....but cost is higher than most.

A) A while back, the President of Middlebury believed that D3 schools needed to be pure to the goals of D3. He sponsored legislation that D3 schools could not offer athletic scholarships. There was much walla walla with the heads of the affected D3 schools on either side of the issue. Clarkson was against. Union was for.
It came to a vote and lost, but it was also agreed that the current D3 schools that were playing up and not offering scholarships couldn't.
Subsequent legislation (2010-100) prohibited D3 schools from playing above their station, with the current schools grandfathered. A provision in the legislation says that if you abandon the playup, you can't playup again.
Union gives money from the endowment fund. Union only has 2,000 students and all are "eligible" to the money, if they are in "need". Athletes get the money(cough, cough, cough)
Salaries at RIT are comparable both Men and Women and they are the lowest in Division I hockey.
Ivy league does not give scholarship but the education, connections etc... is worth the student loan.
In the mid 80's when the NCAA passed the rule regarding multi divisional colleges, Union decided to not give scholarship, Colgate decided to give scholarship.
RIT and Union are the only non ivy league schools who do not give scholarship Union plays in the ECAC (strong league). RIT in Atlantic hockey ( not as strong or respected).
Bottom line; Its hard to win and when a team does not have the resources other schools have, well very very hard to win.
Strong coaching can help, however to be consistent, the programs need more resources which they will never get.
