At Admission Possible where we are college coaches to students from low-income backgrounds, we don’t spend much time pouring over traditional rankings. Rankings can help you identify unfamiliar schools to research. However, they cannot capture the most important factor – YOU – and your personal fit with a college. You have to look beyond the rankings list to find the campus that will support your academic and social connection needs. And don’t get sticker shock, especially when looking at ‘ranked’ colleges. Just because a school appears expensive, doesn’t mean it is. Scholarships and aid are more plentiful than you might think!
