Don’t have time to track down relevant stories about college admissions, financial aid and important topics for families with teenagers?
Here are my CBS stories from the past week:
In general, elite colleges offer phenomenal financial aid packages. If you can get into a school like Swarthmore and Princeton, you’ve won the educational lottery. But, as you’ll see, these incredibly generous policies might be disappearing.
I was surprised by this one. I knew affluent students performed better on the SAT than low-income kids, but I didn’t realize how even a $20,000 boost in income can impact a teen’s SAT scores!
I wrote about the release of the latest batch of SAT scores. This blog also provides a link to individual state scores.
