Making a College Visit Pay-Off

Oct 17, 2019

A visit to a college campus is a very important part of the process of finding a college that is a great academic, social and financial fit.  The very first point: make sure your son or daughter is enthusiastically on-board and engaged in making the plans.

That sounds odd, doesn’t it, “to win the financial aid game.”  You don’t have to stretch very far to see that the financial aid process has characteristics of a game: there is a rulebook, a referee (the U.S. Department of Education), a defined time period and rewards at the end for the winners.  Unfortunately, as we’ve recently learned, there are cheaters too.
