Colleges argue that new financial-aid engineering is necessary at a time when tuition is high and many private schools don't have enough aid to go around. For example, some schools may give less aid to prospective student who interviews on campus since they show a high interest in attending. Last year, Johns Hopkins University quietly offered larger aid grants to incoming humanities majors in comparison to most of their premed counterparts. The school had plenty of premed majors and wanted more humanities majors. Although no longer in practice at Hopkins, other schools are trying this experiment. (April 1, 1996)
