That depends on the school you are applying to. Some institutions will say they evaluate students on a "need blind" basis meaning, a need for financial aid will not factor into their decision. On the other hand, there are those schools that will see the need and place the application in a pile that selected students do not come from. Please read the article below and scan the attached chart for more information about individual colleges and whether they conduct their admission on a need blind basis. Those schools that do not operate on a need blind basis, are those where solid ability to meet the cost of attendance for four full years is present. An additional idea of being able to count on future donations to the school by those able to fund their four years fully, is another concept which colleges may use when deciding if they will accept students on a need blind basis or not. I found the attached article interesting and the chart, very helpful
