Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) outcomes will be arriving within several weeks. This is Thanksgiving week and families around the world, especially here in America, are hoping to give thanks for a generous financial aid package that will be arriving either with or shortly following the goods news of getting into a dream school. That good news can turn into disappointing news, however, if that aid package doesn't meet a family's needs.
Sometimes students are admitted to a dream college but then forced to turn the offer down due to finances. Believe it or not, those of you who come from low-income homes could be in better shape than many of your friends from middle- or higher-income brackets.
