As part of our effort to provide different or various insights on the college decision process, we periodically post articles that we find helpful to our readers. I just wanted to include this short article titled, “What Rising College Application Volume Means for the Class of 2020” by Bradford Holmes at US News and World Report. The author states that some students are currently applying to up to fifteen schools during the college selection process. College Affordability LLC has written several blogs post about the college decision and selection process.
Lowering your cost of college includes the number of colleges you apply for admission. Many students increase the number of school applications hoping that the colleges will provide the financial aid they need to attend a certain college. Many times this money is wasted because the college list is not refined enough.
