    Princeton offers the most generous financial aid. I will be attending Princeton on a full ride, and I know this could not be possible without Princeton's financial aid. I am a first generation student in my family and I always knew that my family would never be able to pay for my college tuition. I had always feared that I would also become unable to attend a college, but Princeton made everything possible for me!
