    You are forgetting the foreign applicants, who not incidentally pay full fare.

    I doubt paying full fare matters at Harvard. To paraphrase a Harold Lloyd film, Harvard is a large private equity firm with a small university attached.

    It probably matters more at the top & middle public institutions.
