    that schools with very good reputations (several top 20 liberal-arts colleges, some with 'need blind admission') do this.  People pay the "parental contribution" because they think it's a hard-and-fast formula... it is not.  If a college has the resources to pay for somebody's kid to go tuition free... why not put in a legwork to make it your kid?

    Make your free throws at the end of regulation, and you'll be ok.

      I went to a pretty good private university in Maryland in the '70s, and it was common practice there.
