Parent of a high school sophomore or junior? There are two things you should do today to help your child begin the college search
One of my students just received $88k in merit scholarships; How scholarships work!
Written by Jack Delehey on November 18th, 2022
Here’s a text I received from one of my students this week:
She was accepted to Loyola Chicago. And received $88,000 in addition to the acceptance!

Want to know how scholarships work? Want to maximize the chance that your child receives a scholarship like this in their acceptance package? If so, it’s a 3-step process:

Step 1: Understand the paying for college formula:

Sticker Price

Minus (-) Financial Aid

Minus (-) Merit Scholarships

Equals (=) What You Pay

Step 2: Understand the difference between merit scholarships & financial aid. They are independent buckets…but can both be used to reduce the total cost of college

Step 3: Understand how to put yourself in the best position in both scholarship buckets.

I teach this in my multi-year start-to-finish College Confidence Program to ensure my students are in the best possible position for not just college admission success, but college payment success.
