12 Days of Christmas 2021: Day 2

(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 second day of Christmas, DIY College Rankings wrote to me:

Two lists worth taking the time to review before creating your college list if you want to save money.

Harvard Scholarships: No Such Thing

This post is actually about Colleges that don’t Offer Merit Scholarships, Harvard is just the example. Skip down to the middle of the post to see a list of 84 colleges that provide little to no merit aid. And not all of them meet full need.

616 Colleges with No Application Fees for 2021

A total of 274 (up from 205 from last year) have graduation rates of 50% or greater. And given it was the first year of COVID, it’s not surprising that 54 (up from 21) of the 105 (up from 65) colleges where tests are “Neither required nor recommended” have free application fees.

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.
