Yes, if cost was an issue you definitely should say so. I will say that Colorado College is a bit off the beaten path. It isn't really near any other liberal arts colleges... so if you are looking at that type of college, you really have to make a special trip. So I am guessing that they do have a lot of students who can't visit. Some thing you can do:
- Might be too late, but did you check to see if their admissions rep was coming to your area? Attending a session if they had one in your area is a good thing (or especially if they came to your school). Or if they were at a college fair in your area, go meet the rep and introduce yourself.
- Email with the admissions rep for your area. If you can come up with a couple of questions about the college, do that.
- Do a very careful review of the website and the College Confidential discussions about the college. Look for specific things that interest you (particularly interesting classes in some area? A new facility in some area you are interested in? a campus club you are excited to join?).
- Is there some reason why you think their block schedule would suit you (any experience with that type of immersion learning in the past that makes it speak to you in a college)?
- Do they offer Skype or alumni interviews? Sign up immediately for one if you haven't yet.
