We will examine the different forms of admission (early action, early decision, regular, and rolling) and discuss the benefits and drawbacks for each. Additionally, we will unpack some of the confusing aspects of the financial aid process, including how the applications for admission and financial aid are separate but work together, the importance of filing the FAFSA, misleading awarding practices to be on the alert for, and much more!

Why Should I File a FAFSA?

FAFSA? What’s that?! We will have a discussion about why completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the most important thing you can do beyond submitting your application for admission. We will also analyze some of the misconceptions families have about the process, explore what FAFSA verification is, and what doors filing the FAFSA opens for additional financial aid.
