Apply to more colleges now, gather your offers, and approach your top choice with your request, the net cost that you and your family can handle. That college may just increase their scholarship and agree to it, especially if you have lower-cost offers from other colleges, including rival colleges.Colleges want to know what it will take to have you enroll. Maybe they won’t fully agree to your request, but if you’re candid and respectful, you’ll likely learn more about each other and get your best-fit college at an even lower cost.
