Why does UCLA have so many poor kids?

I saw a statistic on niche that 30 percent of their students receive the pell grant. At Brown, only 13 percent of their kids receive the pell grant.

    Brown is an expensive, private, Ivy League school. The number of low-income students applying and attending there will be much less than the number applying to a public state institution such as UCLA.

    UCLA has a much greater undergrad population. It is a public university. It had 111,266 student apply

    Brown is a private university . Much smaller student population. They had 35,437 student apply.

    It makes sense that less students with a Pell Grant

    Brown is a private college.

    UCLA is a public state college with a commitment to providing education to talented but low-income state residents.

    Now, think about it.

    It may have something to do with California's huge population. Rhode Island is a tiny state, and Brown is a very expensive university.
