    College-bound students delay decision-making process

    Maybe if these colleges were more competitive and offered a good education for the price that they are charging, they would not have these problems.


    It's essentially like shopping for a car or a house.  If a better offer comes along, then you are going to take it.

    If U-Hartford wants the kid to go to school there, they should make it happen.  Otherwise, they should stop their whining about things.

    College-bound students delay decision-making process

    I'm sorry, I just have never understood how Higher Learning gets away with it.  They are businesses; vendors who sell a service to customers.  They are haughty, condescending, secretive, and mysterious about the sales process, publishing a price list that has little to do with what each customer pays.  They tack on fees whether the customer uses that service or not.  They sell supplies that they obsolete in less than a semester, so the customer has to buy new supplies to finish the course already begun, unless of course they just cancel it because they didn't meet their sales projections. And that's just the admission, tuition, and book process!  Any other business that treated the customer base like that would be out of business in a New York minute, and the AG's Office would have the execs on trial for unfair credit and sales processes.

    College-bound students delay decision-making process

    I think the majority of the graduating class of any city has high school students who not only don't have affluent parents to pay for their education, but are also  " middle of the road " performers as well.

    Unless you're a student that has parents to pay for college, or there's a scholarship that has already awarded you something to pay for tuition - the best course of action is to do everything one at a time even if it turns out to be far later than everyone else. 

    What good is filling out all the paperwork to apply for both college and financial aid if you end up not even graduating high school on time in the first place?
