We often mention the difference between being competitive in a highly selective applicant pool versus being compelling, which is the difference between who gets in and who does not. We’re sharing actual examples of compelling students we’ve worked with recently who have had success at this level. For those finding college too expensive even with scholarships and financial aid or those who want a different college experience, we have information about options to have your degree funded by your employer. We’re also discussing who qualifies for in-state tuition, who doesn’t, and some options for ways in which you might qualify even if you technically live in another state.
