The financial aid appeal letter may be the most under-utilized step in the college admissions process.
You would be hard-pressed to find a parent who did not want to receive some sort of aid for their college-bound children, but far too many never even attempt to qualify. In fact, many people assume that if they make too much money or have too many assets, then they have no chance of receiving any college financial aid.
I am going to tell you about something that may save you thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars on your child's education. Most families take a completely "backwards" approach when searching for financial aid money.
If your child is in his/her junior year of high school and hasn't started filling out their college applications, you must find out the financial aid deadlines at each college and make sure you get them in before the earliest deadline!
