Schools that offer to reimburse for visit costs
« on: February 26, 2006, 12:22:29 AM »
I want to try to get a list going of the schools that offer to reimburse (at least partially or for people a certain distance away) for travel to visit them?

Is this for schools that put it out there on their own (like Penn) or schools that seem to be keeping it on the D/L?  I ask because if it's the case that this or that school doesn't want everyone knowing they are willing to do this, I'd rather not put it out there incase too many people start asking and then maybe they become more stringent with it in the future or something.

But for the first case:

U Penn


Stanford - my friend told me they offer 500 for airfare *though she is flying international* 'plus' ground transport
Berkeley - 100 i think for instate airfare and 300 for out of state (booked through boalt's travel agency)

Paying $300 for students that ENROLL. That's an interesting and subtle incentive system to get prospective students to attend UMN

Columbia will reimburse for travel costs.  The info's in the admitted students handbook, I believe.
ATTENDING: Columbia

Well that's the stipulation for most schools.  Only some (Penn, Stanford, for example) are offering it to everyone.  And even Penn requests that you show some restraint and only ask to be reimbursed if you actually need to be.
