My son has received two invitations to apply using a priority application that waived his application fee and promised a quick turn around on a decision. I don't think either school was one that he approached, and he usually does not check the box on SAT's to share his info with colleges. So I'm wondering - how did these schools find him? He's already made his school list and is almost ready to press the submit button on all of them, so he doesn't need any more of these priority apps, but I've got two more sons a couple years out from applying to colleges.
I'd really like to know how to make more schools aware of each of them and get more priority apps - it's so nice to not have to pay the $50, and to get an answer really quickly!
