Good for OP, but he might have to ask for money from them first. Unless he got a full scholarship, Harvard isn't cheap. 4 years will set you back 160 big ones.

Or if he's economically disadvantaged, less than 80k a year income, then he would get into Harvard without paying a dime for tuition.

Harvard has a generous financial aid program. They make sure you can afford to go, and you have 0 debt at the end. Congrats for getting in. And for the idiot who said he might be doing art, it doesnt help your chances. At all.

Did i mention that no one gets merit-based aid? No one gets "full scholarship" but if their family earns less than 70k (80k?) a year it's a full ride. Same with princeton and yale. The last thing they want is someone to not enroll because they can't afford to.

Why is everybody thumbing down 11? It's a valid concern and a serious problem facing many newly graduated arts majors.

But the ones who are discovered are few and far between. I'm all for following your dreams, and I applaud those who do, but with art the chances of success are astronomically low.

My point was: just because he's going to Harvard, doesn't mean he's gonna be loaded.

That was obviously a reply to the comment stating that they'd be coming to OP when he/she becomes rich. Clearly a joke, reflecting a much established stereotype of arts degrees leading nowhere (trying Googling "Eng Lit/Art History grads + McDonalds".

If someone's good enough at arts to get into harvard, i doubt they would go. There are far better arts schools than harvard. Not to say that there aren't art majors at harvard, but they're probably studying something else, too.

#10, I don't think his family with be very impressed if he goes to a group of pictures pasted onto a backing. If he does go to college, let's hope he learns some spelling and grammar while he's there. ;)

#60, "College" is where you go for education after you complete high school, and a "collage" is group of different art media, often photographs, pasted to a backing. By the way, "college" is used as a catch-all in everyday speech to include all post-secondary institutions like universities, schools, institutes, colleges, etc.
