Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

July 16th 2015:Can You Apply Early Decision and Still Get Financial Aid?

Early decision is a way for students to show commitment to their top choice college and get an early answer at the same time. But you may not be aware that there can be significant financial implications to this binding option. We'll dig into what applying under this program can mean for financial aid and scholarships. We’re also going to wrap up our four-part segment on the high school years with a final piece on what to focus on senior year. Finally, we’re going to cover the impact of learning differences on the college process and offer tips on how to manage those challenges.
