Application strategy and scholarship money


Students often apply to colleges that accept students with grade point averages and test scores at or above their own. They do so to gain admission to colleges they consider more prestigious because of higher academic admission requirements. However there is a price to that strategy and the price is scholarship money. 

Students are more likely to be offered scholarships at colleges where their grade point average and test scores are higher than the average applicant. A great strategy is to apply to colleges with admission requirements slightly below, at and above the student grade point average and test scores. This strategy gives students the opportunity to be accepted at more selective colleges as well as schools that will be more generous with scholarships. Students can then weigh the merits of prestige and lowered costs when they make their final choice.

They do as such to pick up admission to schools they consider more prestigious as a result of higher scholarly confirmation necessities. However there is a cost to that methodology and the cost is grant cash. Thank you so much.
