Have you ever wondered why students shouldn’t apply to too many schools? Or how many is too many? University Coach admissions expert Elizabeth Heaton recently spoke with Peter Howe associated with NECN’s Money Saving Monday to answer these questions.
What does this have to do with saving money? It’s simply no secret that college is costly, but one frequently overlooked financial factor is application fees, which can go as high as $100 each. Numerous students submitting 10, 12 or even more applications, these fees add up. A good way to cut those costs is to avoid mass-applying to dozens of colleges.
