Important FASFA Change - Class of 2017

There will be a change, and I think an improvement, to the FASFA process for the Class of 2017.  I have attached a link to a Forbes article that discusses the change and how it can impact families financially, and how it can help in applying to colleges you can actually afford.

At the bottom of the article there are some great links regarding colleges as well.

Happy reading.


Questbridge Information

I wanted to give you all more information about Questbridge. They are an excellent resource for the following students:

Lower income students (approx 60K per year and below - might be more with large family) 
First generation college students 
Top 5-10% of class 
SAT: 1820-2090 ACT: 28-32

Because we have students who would qualify, I wanted to alert you to look into it if you think it might work. There are programs for both juniors and seniors to apply for.

Go to: http://www.questbridge.org/for-students/students-start-here to get started, or there you can find more information

The application process is quite a doozy, so you want to start now. Juniors, you should plan to take the SAT or ACT soon in order to qualify (they have a scholarship opportunity and it often leads to qualification for the college match).

From Questbridge:

QuestBridge is a powerful platform bridging the nation's brightest, under-served youth and leading institutions of higher education and further opportunities. QuestBridge provides a single, internet-based meeting point which links exceptional students with colleges, scholarship providers, enrichment programs, employers, and organizations seeking students who have excelled despite obstacles. By facilitating these exchanges, QuestBridge aims to increase the percentage of talented low-income students attending the nation's best universities and the ranks of national leadership itself.
