    @3bound getting the finances in order early is a big help. Merit money might be hard to pin down until he gets SAT score back, but it will give you a good starting point. Being open that finances are a factor in the process is helpful to your son too. You will see a lot of posts here in March/April saying kid got in - how do we pay for it? Which is really too bad for everyone.

    Agree with #31 that you should know the price limit and tell him what it is before he starts making his application list.
