It’s a great question, isn’t it? I’m sure many students are asking themselves this question right now, as they compare aid offers and decide where to enroll. Unfortunately, I can’t answer it for you—only you and your parents can make a decision about how much is too much for you and your family to borrow. We at College Coach believe that a reasonable amount of debt is a worthwhile investment in your future, and will repay itself over and over again, both monetarily and in the less quantifiable benefits that come with earning a college degree.
Admissions, Penn Style
Ever wonder how admission officers at the most selective universities read applications? In the latest episode of Getting In: A College Coach Conversation, host Elizabeth Heaton launched the second installment in the series looking at how admissions decisions are made at a variety of institutions. To help her discuss admissions at the University of Pennsylvania, Beth welcomed her former Penn colleague, College Coach expert Sai Somboon. Together they discussed how applications are read at Penn, helping listeners understand the process a bit better.
