Awards, Appeals, Waitlists & Final College Selection

Hi Friend,

It’s April! Congratulations to all our seniors! College acceptances and financial aid offers have finally arrived. YOU get to choose your best academic, social, and financial fit college.

Parents and students sometimes ask: Can I appeal my financial award? Yes, there is a process in place where you can appeal, and a financial aid officer has authority to make changes. Read Should You Appeal Your College Financial Aid Award? to learn more.

Many seniors are disappointed to find out that they are waitlisted for their favorite college. Covid-19 has disrupted traditional admissions patterns and requirements. Colleges are struggling to decide how many students to accept, decline, or waitlist. Wondering what this means for your student? Check out this article from College Confidential for insights.Whether you have a senior reviewing offers, or younger students starting their college tours, we can help you take your next step on the path to creating a clear college funding plan.  Sign up for a webinar or give me a call today!
