There is quite a bit of information on legacies at Harvard. The Crimson surveys each incoming freshman class, and the response rate is high (most of the class).
> 57 percent of the Harvard class of 2020 surveyed reported receiving financial aid > 26.6 percent of the legacies (one or both parents) reported having family income over $500000 > About 73 percent of the enrolled class was non-legacy, i.e., no parent, sibling, or relative (grandparents, aunts, uncles) attended Harvard > 14.6 percent of the entering class had one or both parents attend Harvard features.thecrimson.com/2016/freshman-survey/makeup/
"Typical" Harvard financial aid.for class of 2021 was $53750 in grants and Harvard-related employment during term
^^^ This is probably about $15,000 more than the average HC financial aid package, which for the HC class of 2020, included about $5,000 in Federal loans.
Schools such as Harvard and Yale have reputations as very generous in terms of financial aid among prospective students. On several occasions I have seen middle class/upper middle class students offered 0 at BU/Northeastern and upwards of 40-50k HYP. (Of course this type of kid gets tempting merit aid at BU/Northeastern but frequently not at the level of financial aid offered by HYP).
