Did Stanford change their policy to becoming need blind?
I heard that Stanford is need blind now for international students? Is this correct?.
I would like to know what are the chances of getting admitted as a British international student into Stanford and be provided with funding or should I consider other schools? Like Harvard or Princeton.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Per Stanford's website that is not true. They still consider requests for financial aid in the admissions process for non-U.S residents. That doesn't mean there isn't aid money, but they do give more preference to applicants that can pay full price. If you need financial aid you would be better off applying to Harvard or Princeton.
Stanford's website does not affirm this is true, so they still will be looking at financial aid in the admission process. Harvard is the #1 program in the US for psychology, and MIT isn't far behind at #3. They are also need-blind for admission. Since both are in Cambridge, MA, the cost of living off-campus will not be that much different. If you were to get into one of these schools, I don't see any reason why you would ever try to transfer out, as they are Top 3 in the country. Hope this helps!
