How colleges will consider my application if I apply in the 11th Grade?

Admissions 5 months ago

VuNova, Team VuNova
Answered 5 months ago

After speaking to several college admissions experts, we can say with confidence that colleges do not consider what grade you are in when you apply. Most important factor is preparing your complete application package which consists of extracurricular activities, achievements and honors. In addition to this, you need to give yourself enough time to prepare a quality application for your own best interest. It’s not impossible to get into college after 11th grade but reality is as most students apply after 12th grade, hence you will be competing with these students.


Are there any benefits of finishing college early?

While some students find it very easy to mold their courses and credit hours accordingly and graduate before 4 years, others might find this task to be very difficult. If you categorize yourself to be a part of the latter, just know that graduating early is not always a bed of roses and there are also many downsides to it. 

Other ways to Save Money 

There are many students who’d want to graduate early because that would help them save money. However, most of them don’t know the other, very efficient way to save money. Many students register themselves as part-time students towards the end of their degree. This doesn’t only help them save money but also gives them time to look for jobs or apply for post-graduation degrees. 

Increase the Stress 

You’re not going to have the stress at the same time as your classmates doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to dodge the senior stress altogether. In fact, be prepared that it might a bit worse for you since you’ll have to wind up things before the time you had initially planned for. Deadlines, due project work and credit hours; fulfilling these requirements in less time might not be a very pleasant thing. 

Missing out on the Fun 

While you’ll be happy to get done with the senior year stress on time, you might also miss out on the senior year fun most of your classmates will be having. Although you’ll be invited to every occasion that your classmates will be having, it won’t be the same as staying around and celebrating every day and every weekend to make the farewell count. 

No Guarantee on the Employment Status 

While you might want to graduate early because you think you might get a job as soon as you leave college, just know that the chances of you graduating might increase but that doesn’t guarantee anything. Moreover, being jobless with your class fellows isn’t as frustrating as being without a job alone. 

The official mark of the beginning of Adulthood 

Lastly, getting out of college would officially mean that you’d have to adult now; get a decent job, pay bills and have greater responsibilities. Not everyone is ready for this at a specific point in their lives. So why rush into it and bid farewell to the secure living when adulthood is all you have to do for the rest of your life.

Answered 9 months ago

Being a part of a school, for instance, taking admission in Columbia University or Yale for that matter, it is not only the tuition fee that needs to be paid by the students. Other than tuition fees, students have so many college related expenditures like their living expenses, their travelling expenses, the cost of purchasing books and relates resources and much more. The student has to be extremely careful about spending the loan amount and should spend a dollar only if it is required. You as a student need to keep in mind that the same student loan amount has to be utilized over the years that you need to attend as a college student.

Wasting any amount from this loan would be a very bad decision for you as student because in the end you are the one who will have to face crucial circumstances. There are many colleges that are very particular about deadlines of their fee payments, and any delay in this matter might put you in serious trouble. And after going through so much to get a student loan, getting into trouble is something you cannot afford, at all.

There are many direct and indirect costs for a college student. And there might be a time during college where you will be needed to work part time while you study. The main purpose for this is to help you earn some extra money so that you can spend a few extra dollars on things that you want and not need. For instance, you cannot waste your student loan on your wish lists like buying clothes or shoes because you simply do not have enough money to spend on clothes. However, if you are working along with studying, you might have enough money in hand to make these extra expenditures which will keep your student loan amount untouched. This will also keep you stress free for you don’t have to worry about getting short of tuition fee.


Confused whether opt for Private Student Loans or go for Public Student Loans?

Ever since education has become expensive, the need for students to get a student loan to complete their degree has become an increasing trend. Now if you are a student or a parent, you must analyze your options for student loans because there are so many options, ranging from private institutions to public institutions. They both have conditions according to their sector and it is up to you how well you can cope with those conditions. And after analyzing this is when you need to take a decision of choosing which sectors student loans you would opt for.

This can be a very confusing process because it involves investment, debt and money. That is why it is very important to see all the tiniest details about these institutions and their student loan programs before you finally take a decision.

About Private Institutions that offer Student Loans

The Private institutes that offer student loans often have a very high rate of interest on their loan. This means that when you have to return the loan that you have taken, you will be paying a much larger amount than the one that you took. However, if you plan to take admission in a popular private college like Princeton University or University of Chicago, you might want to opt for private institutions to get the student loan because the amount that they offer as a loan is much bigger than that of a public institute which will be sufficient for you to meet the expenditures of a private college like Yale University of Stanford University.

About Public Institutions that offer Student Loans

The best thing about borrowing a student loan from a public institution is that the rate of interest at which you take the student loan is much less than that of a private institution. Another benefit of getting a student loan from the government is that even if the rate of interest rises overall in the coming future,  you may clamp the rate of interest at the time of taking the student loan. This means even if there is a huge increase in the rate of interest, you will still be paying the debt on the rate of interest that you took your student loan at.


Getting into College without SAT or ACT an option?

Answered 10 months ago

If you have just completed your high school, and are looking for college admissions in prestigious schools like Columbia University or Dartmouth College, the very first important thing you need to check is whether they require a placement test or not. Since most of the top and popular schools require you as student to appear for SAT or ACT, you might just want to prepare yourself in time to get an amazing test score.

These are standardized tests which have been getting a lot of attention for debate as to whether these are necessary for college students or not. SAT and ACT, both cover up subjects that students have already covered back in high school. Where on one hand, these tests are considered to be very important in analyzing the level of academic skills of the student, there has been a lot of discussion as to how this is not true in reality.  The results of these tests might not display an accurate depiction of the academic skills that a student has or is capable of. This is one reason why many schools are reanalyzing the compulsion of these aptitude tests and considering the removal of such policies as they might seem pretty baseless in view of certain schools.

If you are scared to appear for these tests, you might just get lucky enough if the school that you aim to apply for might make these SAT or ACT optional for you. That is why you need to update yourself about the changing policies of schools to know whether you need to prepare for a test or not. George Washington University is one of the many schools who have revised their school policies and have removed the compulsion of these tests by giving the student an option to give the test or not.

Different colleges view the need for this aptitude test differently, so you as an applicant should be very careful about the requirements of the school you are applying for admission and must not get confused about the test being optional as that is not the case for every institute.

Do Parents have Alternate options to borrowing for college education of their child?

Answered 10 months ago

Yes, of course borrowing is not the only way to pay for your child’s education. And borrowing in your name too, isn’t the only option you have as a parent.Let’s discuss what alternatives can be taken by parents and students to pay for the college expenditures for good colleges like University of Notre Dame and Cornell University.

  1. Sit down with your children and discuss options for going to college without any debt. These options include getting scholarships which are not only limited to your test scores, but you can also get yourself a scholarship based on your over al performance in high school. Your participation in extra-curricular activities in high school can also help you go to college without getting a debt.
  2. Besides this, another option for going to college without getting a loan is to search for financial aid. Many schools like Princeton University and Harvard University offer financial aid, considering your current financial income and other respective fields. There are certain programs that offer grants to students on different criteria. Keep a close eye for such grants because these are debt free, which means that you or your child does not need to return this money.
  3. The last resort in this case is to go for a student loan. Yes, go for a student loan and being a parent, you would want to help your child with the burden of repayment and would consider co-signing the loan contract. However, it is suggested that you don’t co-sign it. The main reason for this is to stop spoon feeding your child and let them get out of their shell. You need to let them face the world all on their own, and paying for their education through this student loan repayment is what they need to do. They can do a part time job, and adjust their studying hours accordingly. This will not only benefit them build their character, but will also reduce your burden of paying the debt all on your own.


Should you apply early for Admission at top schools like Harvard, Yale, Cornell etc

Admissions 10 months ago

Answered 10 months ago

For those students who are interested in getting admission in well-known and popular schools like Princeton University, Harvard University, University of Chicago and Yale University, applying early for college admission can be a good and a bad decision based on your college application and your overall score.

Why would applying early for college admission be a good decision?

 

Applying early for college admission can be a great decision for you if your application for college admission is superb and attracts the attention of various colleges. Applying early for college admissions must not be done in a hurry by the student, just to make sure that the student gets accepted.  It often happens that when a student is applying early for college admission, they forget minute details which can be the main reason for their rejection. So if you plan to apply early for college admission in any college of your choice, you must make sure that the college application is perfect, your college essay must also reflect your thinking and what you are as a person.  There are higher chances of you getting accepted if this is the case.

Why would applying early for college admission would be a bad decision?

 

May it be Columbia University or University of Chicago, these schools offer a number of scholarship based on merit. They also provide financial aid to the students who are not financially strong and would need financial aid to be a part of a prestigious university. However, if you want to get scholarship based on merit and are applying early for college admission, there are chances that you might not get the scholarship that you want. This, according to a number of articles is one of the disadvantages of applying early for college admission. Another drawback of applying before time for college admission is that, in case the student gets rejected, because of whatever reason, he or she might get discouraged and may start doubting their abilities. They might not be able to take this rejection positively and start seeing themselves as worthless of other opportunities and might not even apply anywhere else.


How to do budgeting if you are a Student

General Questions 10 months ago

VuNova, Team VuNova
Answered 10 months ago

To be a part of a very good school like University of California or Yale University, students often take loans to pay for their education. These loans are huge amounts of dollars in their account from different lenders which they have to pay on a monthly basis depending on different terms. Some terms suggest they start paying these installments as soon they get the student loan transferred to the student, or they start paying it after they complete their education from the school they took admission in.

One of the major errors that students who have taken up a huge amount as student loan make is that they do not budget their expenditures. They do not keep a check on the things which are necessities for them and which can be avoided. This leaves them with less money in hand for their actual education costs, like tuitions fees. And now to pay for their tuition, they might look for more loans. More loans mean more debt, and more money that needs to be earned by the student to pay that debt off.

If you are a student and are planning on getting a student loan for college admission, you must make a budget for yourself and your finances. This is also for those students who are currently studying in college and have a huge debt to pay off. You need to stop wasting the student loan amount on things which are not directly linked to your education and things that you can survive without.

You need to make an estimate about the monthly utilities that you need to make, including the groceries and travelling expenses. After estimation has been made, this will give you an insight of how much money you are left with after paying your monthly dues and debts. This will help you manage your money even better as you would know the amounts you are spending and what out of these costs could be reduced to save yourself from going towards more student loans in case you have a shortage of money.


What are some advantages of Parents PLUS loan

General Questions 10 months ago

VuNova, Team VuNova
Answered 10 months ago

When a student gets into a college of their dreams, say Princeton University or Stanford University, initially it should be the studies and the assignment deadlines the student should be tensed about. However, that is not the case for many students who have taken loans to pay for their college expenditures and need to think about ways in which their debt could be paid off within a certain time period. There are so many students who complete their education with a huge burden on their shoulders, and that burden is the loan that they need to pay off. There are some students who do not have the financial support of their parents and have to take care of this debt burden all on their own. Then there are students, whose parents are equally involved in the debt sharing for which they take the Parents PLUS loans, sharing the debt between the student and the parent.

For a parent who is planning to get a Parent PLUS loan or a direct loan, must analyze the following advantages that they might get as a matter of fact for opting of Parent PLUS loan.

  1. The rate of interest on the loan taken is locked
    This means that the interest rate at which you took the loan is going to remain the same throughout the loans life until it is paid. This will give the debtors to pay off their debt at a rate lower in comparison to the other loans which might change their interest rate with time.
  2. You can repay your debt through the different options you have
    Parents get a chance to pick the repayment method that suits them the best. They can either opt for standard, extended or even a graduated plan for the way you want to repay your debt. And the repayment method can be changed during the time or repayment as well. This means that if you are having some major difficulties in repaying your debt with the standard plan, you may have the option to switch to graduated or extended plans of repayment.


What are benefits of Direct Loan Consolidation?

  • Combining all your loans and making it one This helps you managing your loans even better. If you had not consolidated your federal loans, you would have a number of 8-9 lenders, with different amounts of repayment, varying due dates and other numerous problems that you would have to be very careful about.  However, if you chose Direct Loan Consolidation, this would combine all your federal loans, make it all one, which means that monthly, instead of making 8-9 payments of debt, now you will only have to make one. This will save you a lot of time and money, which would have been wasted otherwise if you have 8-9 different lenders to pay through different payment methods.
  • Interest Rate to remain the same
    With so many lenders on your list of repayment, the rate of interest for each might vary as well. Direct Loan Consolidation can help you come down to one interest rate which will be decided by taking an average of all the loans that are being consolidated. This would be a plus point for you as a debtor making you pay your debt on one interest rate.
  • You can Lower your repayment amount
    Consolidation gives you, as a debtor an advantage to get your amount of repayment reduced to an amount that will be easier for you to pay on a monthly basis. Now where your terms said that the life of your loan would be 10 years, you can get this changed to more years which would mean that your repayment amount will decrease. This will give you a chance to manage your repayment of debt easily as a small and single amount needs to be paid every month under direct loan consolidation. This will not only help you by making your loans more affordable, but will also enable you to live your life slightly less stressfully, improving your health conditions simultaneously.
  • You can change your repayment plan at any time during the direct loan consolidation period
    Changing your repayment plan is possible only under this consolidation of loans where if you had earlier decided one a standard plan which would be repayment of your loan over a period of 10 years, you can switch your plan to extended which would mean now your amount of repayment would be less and the time period would expand to 20-25 years.


What you need to know when applying for College

College admission is not just about filling an application with the best information, there is so much more that you need to do when applying for college. The very first important thing being, which college do you want to apply to? Students have more than one choice, where on one hand they might want to go to University of Pennsylvania, at the same time, the amazing academics of Duke University. Each school has so much to offer to the students that they often get super confused as to which college should they apply first. Before you begin filling a college application for any college, the following things need to be done by you as a student.

  1. Research efficiently about the college of your choice and analyze which school would be the best for you. Whether you want to go to a simple graduate school or want to go to a career school which would give you a more focused direction.  Go through the websites and booklets of different schools to understand what programs they offer and decide on the top 5 that you might want to apply to.
  2. Once you have picked your favorite top 5, you might want to narrow down your choices to 3. This will help you make a better decision about which college out of the 5 matches your eligibility, including your financial circumstances.
  3. The next step for you as a student is to look into the major requirements of the school that you have finally chosen to apply. Since the requirements for college admission vary from college to college, you might want to write it all down in front of you so that you don’t have to access the websites again and again. The main purpose of doing this is so that you know the deadlines and don’t miss out on any deadline, whether it’s submitting the college application or submitting the tuition fee.


How many Schools should you apply to?

Answered 10 months ago

You cannot just know the number of schools that you should apply to for admission. It all depends on the time that you have and how you can arrange all the needed requirements in the given time for all the colleges that you have selected. Applying for admission in schools like Princeton University and University of Chicago might be your dream come to, but along with it comes a number of responsibilities that you must complete along with your college application. To begin with, how many colleges should you apply to? One? Or more than one? Well, applying just to one college should not be the case. Why? Because there are so many students applying from different corner of the world to each and every university, if you apply for admission in just one college, there is a high chance of you not being accepted, considering the competitive situation. So, as a student, you must keep your options open and apply to at least more than one school.

Now the number of schools you wish to apply to should not exceed the number 10 because the college admission procedure for one single college is very hectic. It might get very difficult for you to manager admission to more than 10 schools, all at one time. It might get more confusing as well, as you will have to keep the deadlines in mind for so many colleges. And as a matter of fact, there are chances you might miss out on important deadlines for some of them, which will directly hinder you from getting admission in that specific school.

In addition to this, there is a certain amount of fees that must be paid to get an application form from each college. This might be an added cost for you if you want to apply to more than 10 colleges.  So a better idea for you is to apply to a small number of colleges, say 3 to 5 schools, and select these schools wisely, depending on your qualification, your future plans and your financial situation.


Why Students worry about College Admissions and Apply Early?

Answered 10 months ago

The procedure of getting admission in a college is very stressful. And for those who are getting admission for the first time, it is even more nerve-racking for them because they have no clue about the things required for college admission and are probably running to colleges to get the information. And because these students are super nervous about getting into a good college, they often apply for admission way early than the average number of students. The reason why they do this is so that they can know before time whether they made it to the college of their choice or not, and if unfortunately they don’t get admission in the college they applied to, they can always apply somewhere else. This is more like a precautionary step that they take in case things didn’t go the way they wanted them to.

Applying early to colleges can be a smart decision as research suggests that students who apply for college admission early often have a greater chance of getting selected by the college. These early applicants are usually the ones who are very qualified and have groomed themselves and planned ahead of time to attract college sponsors. Therefore it is suggested that you apply early for college admission only if you know you are capable enough of passing all the admission procedures.

Early College Admission application should only be done if you are well adapted and have taken final decisions regarding your education. Getting accepted by any university through early admission means that the student will be bound to attend that college according to the rules and policies. But this again, differs from college to college. This decision must be thoroughly analysed by the student. Most of the students take this decision when they are very anxious about missing out on application deadlines or fear not getting any acceptance from the college of their choice. So relax and think before you apply early for college admission

1.One of the most important things that you need to be careful about is to choose the right college for yourself. All the top schools including University of Chicago, Cornell University, Stanford University, Yale University and some more amazing colleges, you need to pick the right one for you.  Keeping in mind your abilities and capacity, you need to make sure that in a hurry you don’t choose a college that doesn’t suit you the best.  Students often take the wrong decision when they want to do things in a hurry and end up being at the wrong end. Even if you are applying early, take your time to understand your educational needs and then decide which college would be the best choice for you. Your capabilities will be polished by the college you are getting into so choose it wisely.

2.When in a hurry, students often don’t get the application right and end up submitting a very poor college application which means that the college might not even consider their application. The main purpose of applying early is to get admission in the college of your choice. But if your application doesn’t attract enough colleges, then there is no point of applying early. That is why you need to complete your admission application calmly, without any errors and making it stand out from other early college admission applications. Hurrying into things can be very tricky, so be careful when applying early to college. A college application should reflect what you are. If the college administration senses that you have filled it in a hurry, they might reject your application. According to a number of researches on this matter, it has been concluded that the role of a college application matters the most and not the time at which you submit it. This again adds the emphasis on the quality of the application which in a way reflects the applicant. So if you want to get accepted by a college and plan to apply early, do it the right way.

Many schools including Stanford University, Oxford University, University of Pennsylvania, North-western University and pretty much all the top-notch schools consider merit as well other factors. This gives you a reason to not just worry about your bad grades or grades lower than the expected grades because these colleges look for other things in a student too. For instance, the character of the student is one of the major criteria that schools all over the world consider before granting them acceptance.  So if you got a bad score on your SAT or your high schools grades, don’t worry at all. Just make sure that your extra-curricular activities and your community services for the society are enough to attract college to give your college application a thumbs up.

Many students make the decision of not applying to colleges or delay their plans of applying for college admissions based on their scores. They don’t discuss it with experts, which would be a better idea, because experts understand the requirements of schools. College admission consultants too can be a great help during this period.

Students need to understand that the college that they are applying too will not just accept or reject their college application based on the score written on it. This should be a source of motivation for all those who have had bad scores and were worried about applying to the University of their Dreams. But then again, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work hard on your scores. Test scores is one of the many major factors, which helps the college decide whether to accept or reject your application. It is not the only factor. So be confident about your character, your curricular activities and, your achievements in high school. All of them added together, including your bad test score, just might turn out to be in your favour, getting you acceptance from the college you have applied for.

The first thing that you need to be precise about is that the essay should be about you no one else. If there are people who might be relevant to your topic and had an impact on you, then you can mention them but at the end of the day the essay should be revolving about you only. In case you don’t want yourself wandering around, be specific to the characteristics you want to talk about and share a fw life experiences and the impact they had on you.

College essays for University of Columbia, Yale, Stanford or any other school don’t have to be any set format. This is because the application needs to be pasted on the website and might lose the original format. However, the general way to write the application is to write in first-person and part tense. Also, don’t forget to make proper paragraphs and use the correct punctuation and grammar.

You can use a conversational and a very casual tone if desired, but just don’t forget to get off the track.
