Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Getting In: A College Coach Conversation

Thursday at 1 PM Pacific

November 19th 2015:Should Wealthy People Apply for Financial Aid?

You've run the numbers on the net price calculators and it's pretty clear--you're not going to qualify for any financial aid. Should you apply anyway? We'll tackle that question in this week's show. We're also going to ponder the pros and cons of befriending your admissions officer, including how much contact is too much contact and whether or not you should even try. If you or your student hasn't gotten very involved in extracurricular activities yet, we have some last minute ideas for seniors (and maybe even juniors) to jumpstart that resume.
