Final College List ..
Preparing the final college list for sending applications:
Since you may have to pay some application fee along with each application to US College you must be very selective while applying.
You must have observed by now that big colleges offer large amount of scholarship and financial aid. This amount is much less for the smaller colleges. The intersting thing is the total cost of education in a big college is 2.5 to 3 times the cost of education in a smaller college.
For one who has to meet 30%-35% of the cost from the family, the impact is huge if he or she wants to study in a big college. e.g. the yearly cost of education in a small college can be $25,000-$35,000 and the same in a big college is $50,000-$70,000.
We talked about the cost because one should choose both expensive and less expensive colleges for applying.
