Title

Occidental still 'need aware' despite rumors

Description

Although many have claimed that Occidental has accepted students on a "need-blind" basis, this article from 2012 points out that this is not the case.

Occidental has a very small endowment when compared to other schools. As the college has become more concerned with its finances, being need-aware creates greater differences in the socio-economic background of the students.
