Funds for College Low? Don’t Sell Yourself Short.
An article in today’s on-line Wall Street Journal highlights the surprising effect financial aid can have on the affordability of private schools. To echo the author’s opening statements, I am one of those many students who started out in an affordable (community) college, even though I knew I could take on bigger challenges academically. Knowing what I know now my advice to you is – Don’t sell yourself short! If you (or someone you know) are daydreaming about going to a private or top-tier school but think you just can’t afford it, you may find that the education you really want is more affordable than you think.
