Here's where you can compare the financial offers from different colleges

Here is a site from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau where you can compare different college financial offers (if the website address doesn’t come up below, if you google it, it will come up).

Came up with a ~2 year out of date COA which isn’t actually that bad for these kind of sites. has a handy comparison calculator to use when you do have the offer letter in your hand. Follow the link at the bottom of their main page that takes you to the list of calculators, the scroll down to find it.
