    • Welcome Parents
      • Generally speaking, what are some differences:
        • enrollment
        • class size
        • research opportunities
        • facilities
        • data driven vs. holistic admissions approach
      • Public Colleges: out-of-state admissions
        • U. Michigan accepts 30% of its out-of-state applicants
        • U. Virginia accepts 12% of its out-of-state applicants
        • U. California accepts 5% of its out-of-state applicants
        • U. Wisconsin accepts 40% of its out-of-state applicants
        • U. Vermont accepts 65% of its out-of-state applicants
      • Notes: 1. Many publics have “Rolling Admissions” policies (apply early), and 2. Tuition for out-of-state students can be 2 or 3 times greater than the college’s tuition for its in-state students
      • Georgetown University is comprised of 4 colleges
      • Cornell University is comprised of 7 colleges
        • Arts and Sciences, Engineering, ALS, Human Ecology, AAP, ILR, and Hotel Administration
      • Apply to the school that is the best MATCH for you
        • Academic program in which you are interested
        • Engineering: math and science!
        • Business: math and business/economics electives
        • Overall Average is important, but it’s not always the most important factor
        • In some cases, difficulty of admission can be greater at one college than another college within the same university
        • Transferring within the University – possible, but not guaranteed
      • NOTE: some universities allow you to apply to more than one of their colleges – rank your order of preference (Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, . . .)
      • Georgetown
      • Harvard
      • Brown
      • Cornell
      • Penn
      • Boston University
      • Notre Dame
      • Yale
      • Princeton
      • Villanova
      • Dartmouth
      • Duke
      • Tufts
      • Columbia
      • Northwestern
      • Northeastern
      • U Virginia
      • NYU
      • Vanderbilt

      • We recommend that your child applies to no more than 10 private colleges. In addition to these 10, remember SUNY’s, CUNY’s, and the CUNY Macaulay Honors Colleges.
      • Read your college applications VERY CAREFULLY . Provide the colleges with everything they ask for, such as:
        • standardized tests such as specific SAT Subject Tests for engineering programs, business programs, etc. . .
        • are you required to apply to a specific college within the larger university
        • Common Application supplement
        • college interview (shown interest – colleges care about “yield”)
        • complete all required essays – avoid the general, recycled essay
        • and, meet all of the colleges’ various deadlines – Admissions, Financial Aid,
        • etc. . .
      • The College Office mails your SSR Guidance Counselor Letter of Recommendation, Transcript, and 1 st Term Schedule to all the colleges you apply to.
      • How does the College Office know which colleges you will be applying to???
      • Applying
      • On the Stuy Student Tool webpage, your child will let us know the following: Please enter all of the colleges to which you are applying. After you have done this, the College Office will send your Transcript, SSR, and current schedule to the colleges you have entered into the system.

      • For all of the colleges that you are applying to, review their Financial Aid websites with your family. Understand each college’s Financial Aid policies (does the college “meet full financial need”), especially if you are applying Early Decision - see pages 15 and 37 of the College Handbook as well as the EFC Calculators on last page of the handbook.
      • Most colleges award aid solely based on the family’s income. If your family is concerned their income/assets are too great to be eligible for financial aid, see us in the College Office for information regarding colleges that offer Academic Merit Aid.
      • Financial Aid Forms (crucial to meet all finaid deadlines):
        • FAFSA
        • CSS Profile
        • in some cases College’s own finaid form
        • TAP (for NYS colleges)
      • Main Point – don’t let the cost of a certain college prevent you from applying there. Often, a great deal of financial aid is awarded to students. Still, make sure that you apply to some Financial Safety Schools.
