(I’m taking a break from regular blogging and newsletters during the holidays. Hope you enjoy the DIY College Rankings version of the 12 Days of Christmas.)
On the seventh day of Christmas, DIY College Rankings wrote to me:
Seven things you should know in college admissions.
Approximately 7 percent of undergraduate students received private scholarships, with an average value of $1,982.
Finding colleges you like and worrying about how you will pay for them later is a bad idea.
Even if finances aren’t a primary consideration, most people don’t do a very good job of creating a college list.
The vast majority of colleges do not create their own net price calculator. Rather, they license an application from one of the major providers or use the free version offered by the federal government. The free version has some major limitations.
I know not everyone can or needs to buy my college search spreadsheets.
But if you’ve found my website useful this past year and are in the position to provide some financial support, I would sincerely appreciate it.
