I'm curious how this affects graduate schools. I.e. - does this in any way affect the law school?

This isn’t good but not surprising. This is happening everywhere right now and a lot of private colleges are being squeezed. This is also currently happening at Howard and Syracuse University.

I feel that the school's mission to serve the underprivileged will lead to more of this...probably more so than other schools. It's a great mission of course, but financially it will hold the university back I would think. Wouldn't having to give tons of scholarship $ and grants mean that the university is making much less? Again, I'm no expert so feel free to correct me but just seems logical. If you really make it your major mission to target students from families that may not have the means to pay the tuition while other private schools don't have that as their central mission, you're spending more money and making less as a university, no?

Gempesaw Is playing the hand dealt to him.

He inherited a mess from “Suits” Harrington which has been complicated by Excelsior Scholarships to SUNY and CUNY schools, escalating health costs, declining Catholic High School enrollment, and other factors.

As much as everyone says college is harder to get into today the reality is that outside of the most competitive schools there is a fight for students. Unfortunately St. John’s doesn’t have the endowment to support the amount of Financial Aid for those students in need as well as the many merit scholarships it has to give out to keep the school attractive to those that can pay by bringing in stronger academic students.

Aren't some public NYC colleges "free" now? St. John's mission of providing financial support might not be feasible (or needed) moving forward.

Every branch of the public NYC colleges (also known as CUNY) was tuition free when I graduated from high school in the 60's.

Believe it or not, it was easier to be admitted into St John's than Queensborough Community College back then.

New York State's Excelsior Scholarship provides in-state, public college tuition for residents whose families earn below a set annual income cap: $100,000 in 2017. This amounts to an annual savings between $4,000 and $6,500, depending on whether the student attends a community college or a four-year school. As the scholarship only covers tuition, students bear the additional cost of fees and room and board, which can cost up to $14,000 annually. To maintain the scholarship, Excelsior students must maintain 30 annual class credits at a state college: State University of New York (SUNY) or City University of New York (CUNY).[2] There will also be a GPA requirement.[3] After graduation, Excelsior students must live and work in New York for as many years as they received the scholarship.[2]

The annual income cap will increase as the Excelsior program is phased in (to $110,000 in 2018, and $125,000 in 2019). By the time the program is fully implemented, an estimated 200,000 will be eligible.[2]
