One of the significant advantages at all the Ivy League schools is that they all have multi-billion $ endowments. So if a really smart kid from a poor family is accepted to an Ivy League school, the school will pick up every last cent of financial assistance required for that kid to complete a 4 year education.

The school won’t pick up 100% of all costs. They will expect the student to take out a modest loan and complete some type of work study program, but as you indicate, kids won’t have to deal with a crushing debt burden after graduating from the Ivies.
All true. Latest figures I've seen show average debt for Yale, Harvard, Princeton to be less than $10,000 for 4 years. Rather amazing. And those that go to work right away get some of the highest starting salaries.

etc.) having the UCONN name/connections is better than pretty much every other name. Also specifically if one wanted to coach after college, spending 4 years with Geno and Co. is second to none.
Allow me to elaborate your point just a little. A recommendation from Geno (and CD) has got to be worth its weight in gold.
