How bad will it impact on an international student who ED to UPenn asking for Financial Aid
I am an International student from India and want to apply for ED at UPenn Engineering. I understand that UPenn is a need-aware for international students. But my family's total annual income is under $10,000.
I want to know how much my admission decision will be hurt if I say that I need 100% need-based scholarship?
Anyone who got full financial aid to UPenn as an international? How generous is UPenn towards international students?

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.
If your family's income is under $10,000 then there is no way you are going to be able to pay $70k a year so its best to apply for a need-based scholarship even if your admissions chances are hurt. As an indian, banks there are not very generous and they require a show of money before they lend so in all honesty, this shouldn't even be a questions and apply for a scholarship so you don't burden your parents or yourself with finances. If they really want you, they will give you as much money as you need to put you in their school.
