Dear College Admission Expert,
My family isn’t exactly rich; paying for college is going to be a big struggle for us. However, I’m worried that when colleges see my financial status, they won’t admit me because they know I’ll need a lot of financial aid. What should I do?
Many colleges will say on the application that they are “need-blind,” which means that the admissions officers don’t even see what your financial status is before they admit you. They only look at your grades and you as a human being, not the amount of money you have. However, there are also some colleges that say they are “need-conscious,” which means that they might take your financial status into consideration, however, it’s probably not going to stop them from admitting a highly qualified and valuable student. My ultimate answer is, don’t worry about it! You have enough to think about with applying to college.
