For those of you who are beginning to shape your college list, here are some great thoughts from the President of Princeton University concerning the importance of understanding rankings. We couldn’t agree more!
“Rankings, however, are a misleading way to assess colleges and universities. There are lots of great places to get an education. America’s colleges and universities work collaboratively to educate the wide variety of people seeking degrees. Different schools may suit different students.”
What student applicants and their parents need is a Consumer Reports-type of college evaluation.
“It’s perfectly normal to be undecided when coming to college. In fact, that is what college is for. It’s an opportunity for students to surprise themselves with what they can do and who they can be.”
A professor's perspective on choosing a major.
There are so many amazing colleges and universities who offer great merit aid for students. The key is targeting those schools from the beginning of the process. Don’t let college “sticker price” scare you away!
The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated already-existing trends, pushing the average tuition discount rate for first-time undergraduates to 53.9 percent this year. Expect discounting to keep climbing even after the pandemic subsides.
