How to Pay Definitions

  1. Targeted Strategies: Your 1400 SAT may get you significant merit aid certain schools and none at others. We can tell you if taking an SAT or ACT review course to increase your scores might bring you more merit aid at a particular school.  Our approach for each family is individualized and specific to you, and our focus is on keeping your college costs as low as possible.
  2. Thorough Analysis: We analyze your opportunities at multiple schools, assuming positive admissions outcomes. Regardless, you will know your student is applying to schools that will be affordable to you.
  3. Accurate Aid Estimates: Unlike Needs-Based aid (which is awarded based on formulas), many Merit aid awards are subjective and may vary. Therefore, we provide conservative estimates of merit aid while hoping the actual award is more generous. However, the chance of a positive appeal outcome with merit aid is often greater than with needs-based aid. The amount of the appeal awarded will of course depend on your circumstances.
  4. Empowered Decision-Making: Armed with comprehensive insights and your best “offer” from each college, you can confidently make a college decision that aligns with both your academic aspirations and financial budget.
