Thank you to Magda for sharing her story with the CFS community. Not all schools will conduct themselves as American University did in this situation. Having said that, we always want to shine a light on the fact that, although they are in the world of academia, colleges are very much BIG BUSINESS and are very much concerned about their own bottom line. Ensure that you are prepared accordingly.
We survey parent’s at the end of every year. Matt shares the biggest piece of advice from parent’s who have just gone through the college process.
If you are a family who will not be eligible to receive need-based financial aid, it is even more important to be strategic with college selection. Be sure some of your colleges also offer merit aid, as that is where you will see your discounts.
Every journey should start by understanding this question….for better or worse!
Make sure you’re staying ahead of the curve. Here is a look at the monthly checklist every CFS family gets.
