Cost Constraints / Budget
(High school students: please get a budget from your parents and use the Net Price Calculators on the web sites of colleges of interest.)
==> my parents can probably contribute 15k USD yearly and that’s why I need an aid preferably or scholarship.
(List of colleges by your initial chance estimate; designate if applying ED/EA/RD; if a scholarship is necessary for affordability, indicate that you are aiming for a scholarship and use the scholarship chance to estimate it into the appropriate group below)
- Safety (certain admission and affordability)
- Washington State University
- Adelphi University
- Likely (would be possible, but very unlikely or surprising, for it not to admit or be affordable)
- Colgate University
- Boston University
- UT Austin
most of the Match universities don’t give out aid but do recommend some colleges which give you generous aid/scholarship/bursaries.
