Preferential Student Packaging is a term you must know so you can get all the aid you can get.

Colleges use financial aid to recruit and attract the students they want. This is called preferential packaging, offering more scholarships/grants to the students they want and “gapping” or under-awarding (offering more loans) to the students they really don’t want or don’t care. Read this as a college playing favorites over one student vs. another.  (I’ll show you how to be a favorite!)

Depending on if the student is highly desirable at college A verses college B will determine what type of scholarship package the student is offered.

Too many times students apply to a “reach” college and maybe they get admitted but will most likely not be offered a great scholarship package. This data can be found on the college's common data set.

The key to preferential packaging and getting a great scholarship is properly positioning and marketing the student to the college(s).

It might mean joining an extra club and getting a leadership position in the club. It might translate to taking the SAT or ACT one more time to bump up the score. It certainly means writing a stand out essay and properly demonstrating interest at the college(s).

Get in, get big scholarships. We’ll show you how! We can help. Give us a call now.

Top 10 Do’s and Don’ts of Private Scholarships

Top 10 Do's and Don'ts of Private Scholarships

Private scholarships are more readily available for you than you may think, especially in your local community. This is the first of a three-part series on Private Scholarships which includes many of the tips I used to give to my own clients to help them win thousands of dollars in local private scholarship contests. Maybe these tips can help your clients too!

Most college scholarships and grants are available through the Federal and State governments, which are ultimately controlled by the colleges themselves.

However, there are a few Private scholarships that are available through outside, private sources. These private scholarships are very competitive, and scholarship judges may spend just a few precious minutes or even seconds reviewing the scholarship application.

With such a finite amount of time to make a lasting impression on these important decision makers, it's crucial that the student makes the most of this opportunity. If not, the application may be on the fast track to the circular file.

Here are the Top 10 Scholarship Do's & Don’ts that you must know to increase your chances of winning a private scholarship:

The Do's

  • Search in your own community first. Your community is one of the biggest sources of scholarships. Find out about these kinds of awards by contacting your local chamber of commerce, community chest, Rotary, etc. and by reading your community newspaper, or searching the Yellow Pages under Foundations.
  • Choose quality over quantity. You'll need to prioritize which scholarships to apply for. Instead of trying to apply to as many scholarships as possible, try to apply to the scholarships that best fit your strengths, interests, and qualifications.
  • Understand the purpose of the scholarship. Scholarships may be designed to encourage students to enter a specific career field, to reward students who contribute to their communities or to help underserved students enter higher education. Use this information to guide how you write your scholarship application.
  • Follow the directions. Make sure you take the time to ensure every “i” is dotted and “t” is crossed. Include all the information and forms requested and answer every question.
  • Write an essay that demonstrates why you should win. The scholarship application gives the scholarship judges a sense of who you are and what's important to you. Think about what skills and qualities the scholarship judges seek and then describe how you match them.
  • Proofread. No matter how strong of an applicant you are, it would be difficult for a scholarship judge to overlook spelling or grammatical errors. Proofread your application and essays carefully, and have your editors do the same.
    Practice for interviews. Ask a friend or parent to do a mock interview with you to prepare for the real thing.
  • Ask your parents for help. Mom and Dad are capable of doing more than writing the tuition check. They can help you find scholarships, keep track of deadlines and give you feedback on your applications and essays.
  • Brag a little about yourself. You need to let your best self-shine through in your scholarship applications – don't be bashful about discussing your accomplishments.

The Don'ts

  • Don't overlook your high school guidance counselor. Helping students pay for college is not their job, but you can take advantage of the knowledge they've accumulated over the years.
  • Don't ignore the Internet. Use the many FREE scholarship searches available on the Internet to find more scholarships.
  • Don't ignore small awards. When there are scholarships worth tens of thousands of dollars, you might think you shouldn't bother with the “small potato” awards. The truth is that a $1,000 scholarship is $1,000 less that you will need to come up with for college.
  • Don't think that you have to be an academic or athletic superstar to win. There are scholarships based on leadership, art, music, theatre, community service and more.
  • Don't be a victim of a scholarship scam. Never pay for an online private scholarship search. You can find private scholarships on your own, and applying for these private scholarships should always be free.
  • Don't use the shotgun approach. Remember that all organizations that award scholarships have different selection criteria. This means that the same application won't work for all of them.
  • Don't forget to answer the question in your essay. There's a reason why the scholarship organizations provide the essay questions. They want to know your answer. An essay can be very well written, but if it doesn't answer the question asked, then it's not going to win.
  • Don't wait until the last minute. You may think that you do your best work on the day before the deadline at 3 a.m., but if you review your work you'll probably see that you don't. Take the pressure off, and allow yourself more time to complete an application.
  • Don't turn in an application that is incomplete. Scholarship organizations receive far more applicants than they can support. Don't give them a reason to take you out of the running for not having a complete application.
  • Don't think that it's impossible for you to win. Every student who has won a scholarship has thought this. And guess what? They won, and you can, too!

College Leaves Financial Gap with Parents Holding the Ball

College leaves Financial gap with parents holding the ball A common practice that colleges use is not meeting the financial aid gap.

College leaves Financial gap with parents holding the ball

A common practice that colleges use is not meeting the financial aid gap.

So let’s say the Cost Of Attendance (COA) for one year at XYZ Private College is $60,000, let’s also assume the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is $20,000. (The EFC is calculated through a federal calculator formula and is what the government thinks or Expects a family to pay for college. The EFC can be controlled/reduced, more on that in my class.) This leaves a Gap of $40,000. This unmet need is referred to as the gap.

Now the question is, of this $40,000 more that we need, how much of this will the college meet. While many colleges are uber rich with endowments in the $100s of millions and even billions of dollars, not all of them are equally generous leaving a much larger gap.

A financial aid gap occurs when a college’s financial aid award for a student doesn’t meet the Gapping became a verb as some colleges have earned a reputation for failing to meet student need, especially students admitted with qualifications placing them in the middle to bottom of the class. Students in the bottom quarter of a class in terms of qualification (grades and GPA, test scores and talent) are always at risk of being gapped with the exception of the most competitive institutions that meet 100% of need. The issue with the most competitive colleges is that unless the student has the grades/GPA and test scores, that student would not be admitted to those highly competitive colleges.

The financial aid gap is a serious concern because the student and family will be responsible for the unmet need in addition to the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Usually, students with gaps will be unable to use federal loans to help cover the gap or the EFC because the college has assigned it to cover part of the defined financial need.

Often, students may not realize that they have been gapped because the financial aid award letter will have the amount covered by a PLUS loan. However, a PLUS loan is money borrowed by the parents and should not be considered part of the college’s financial aid award.

College rankings drives the selectivity of the college. Reverse the tables on the college and properly market, sell, and promote yourself (your student) to the college so that the college WANTS to admit you because they feel that your student will increase their rankings in one or more categories.

Discover how to Win at the College Admission and College Scholarship Game regardless of if Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Ben Caron, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina or any other person is elected the next president. We can help. Choosing the right college is critical.

Unintended Consequences of a Private Scholarship

Don't pan for gold in the wrong place!

Don't pan for gold in the wrong place!

goldminer

Before you and your student spend time and energy searching for that all powerful, all encompassing Private Scholarship, the FIRST thing you must do is find out what the college will do with the Private Scholarship funds.

Will the college use the Private Scholarships to reduce the loans offered to the student, or will the college reduce the Grants and School Endowment Scholarships keeping the parent’s cost the same?
The National Scholarship Providers Association (NSPA) sponsored a Private Scholarship Count that was published in 2005. The publication states (the) “Total private scholarship aid was between $3.1 billion and $3.3 billion in 2003-2004.” NSPA link http://www.scholarshipproviders.org/Documents/PrivateScholCount.pdf

While this number seems impressive, the publication then further states that "Approximately 7 percent of undergraduate students received private scholarships, with an average value of $1,982."

Two grand, $2,000 is way short of the cost of attendance even at a community college. Arizona State University’s Cost of Attendance for one year now tops $25,600 for in state students. There is little impact that the average $1,982 private scholarship would have at ASU in the grand scheme of things. As an example, from ASU’s endowments the in state Presidential Scholarship is $9,500. This is a bigger impact on the parent’s Net Cost.

There is more money and bigger scholarships granted from the college’s endowment funds to students that the college wants to entice the student to attend their college thereby reducing the cost of the college to not only the student but also the parent.

I have said it a hundred times and will say it a thousand more… the Best Scholarships and the Biggest Scholarships are scholarships given to the student through the college. This is achieved through Student Positioning and properly marketing the student to the right college.

Colleges absorb outside scholarships, parent contribution unchanged

By Daniel Banko on October 23, 2014

Three weeks ago, the Phoenix published an op-ed by Casey Simon-Plumb ’18 about Swarthmore’s financial aid policy. In her piece, Simon-Plumb wrote about her disappointment after discovering that outside scholarship awards are partially surrendered to the college as part of their financial aid package. She asked, “Why is my hard-earned scholarship money being absorbed into a mysterious fund and being allocated towards who knows what? The formal language in financial aid brochures only tell a person so much.”

According to the school’s financial aid brochure, since financial aid packages hypothetically meet a student’s demonstrated need, “any additional outside aid must replace a portion of our award to you.” It means that students at Swarthmore cannot apply their outside grant towards reducing Estimated Family Contribution, only to reducing student loans and work study.
Simon-Plumb was critical of this policy.

“Read the fine print. The first $500 of outside aid was all mine, along with 50 percent of the remaining outside scholarship amount … [That 50 percent] ‘replaces Swarthmore scholarship’ — the grant aid I was receiving — leaving the dollar total my family had to pay relatively the same.”

When asked for comments on the article via email, Laura Talbot, director of financial aid, refused to comment on the matter.
Other members of the Financial Aid office would not comment. As it stands, current financial aid policies offer little economic incentive for outside aid. Using outside aid to reduce student loans and work study is beneficial, but given the fact that the EFC is most often a student’s greatest source of debt, this policy means that outside scholarships are not as helpful as they could be.

When reached for comment, Gregory Brown, vice president for finance and administration, defended the policy.

“The college’s longstanding policy, which is consistent with our peer institutions in accordance with federal regulations, does not permit us to count outside awards as parental contributions. Doing so would be inappropriate since the student, not the parents, received the award, so the award is not part of the parents’ reported taxable income,” he wrote in an email.

Brown also mentioned Talbot’s upcoming retirement and the current search for a new director of financial aid.

“I hope that students will continue to share their experiences with us so that we can continually improve our service to students and their families. In particular, I would welcome student feedback and suggestions about the qualities that we should look for in our next director of financial aid,” he wrote.

At Amherst, Pomona, Williams, Brown, Duke, and Stanford, the financial aid policy regarding outside aid is the same as at Swarthmore. Outside aid cannot be used to reduce a student’s EFC.

Dartmouth college’s financial aid website states, “If the outside scholarship is greater than the self-help level, the family responsibility can be reduced to the federal level.” While it seems EFC for students at Dartmouth can be reduced by outside aid, the key phrase is “reduced to the federal level.” Outside aid can only reduce a family’s expected contribution at Dartmouth to the amount on the FAFSA form, which is often the same or closely related to the EFC that colleges calculate anyway.

In fact, the reason for this similarity between colleges regarding financial aid policy is due to a government mandate set by the Department of Education and outlined in their Federal Student Aid Handbook. Chapter three of the Handbook discusses the steps that college financial aid officers should take in the case of “overawards,” meaning when the total sum of a student’s aid exceeds his need.

When this happens, the handbook states that a college financial aid office only has one option: adjust the financial aid package awarded to the student, but do not adjust their EFC. In all circumstances, outside aid cannot be used to lower a student’s EFC.

Although the policy regarding outside aid is not unique to Swarthmore, students are often unaware when they head to college for the first time that their EFC, as shown on their financial aid package, is a fixed annual number that cannot be reduced by anything short of a dramatic decrease in family income. Outside scholarships they received in high school can do nothing to help alleviate a family’s financial burden of affording college.

So, J.D., what do we do?

You must learn how to Play the College Game, craft a great college candidate and resume, identify the right colleges for your student, properly sell/market/advertise your student to the college. We can help with this process. There is a college for Any Type of student. We can help you get into college and get the best scholarship package that you can.

The Truth Is Out There.

What is the PSAT 10?

The PSAT 10 is a practice SAT exam that debuted in the 2015-16 school year. It is aligned to the new SAT which meaning it has new SAT question types including evidence support questions on the reading. The scores will be on the same scale as the new SAT.

The PSAT 10 does not qualify students for the National Merit competition, even if you get a really high score. It's just a practice test.

And one of the best ways to practice for the PSAT is to take the PSAT 10 in a live real setting. Then when you receive your score sheet, determine what areas need improvement then study those sections.

A Chance to Boost Financial Aid for Today’s High-School Sophomores

Strategic moves by Dec. 31 may help some families reduce the income to be reported on the Fafsa form for the freshman year of college

By  VERONICA DAGHER

Attention, parents of high-school sophomores: There are financial steps you may want to take before year-end to help your child get more financial aid for the freshman year of college.

A recent executive order signed by President Barack Obama will change the rules for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid beginning with aid for the 2017-18 school year. Families will complete the form based on their “prior prior year” income instead of prior-year income as they do now.

That means that current high-school sophomores who graduate in 2018 will use 2016, not 2017, as the base year in reporting family and student income on their first Fafsa form. The government form is used in determining the amount of grants, loans and other forms of financial aid.

The upshot: If families were contemplating actions in 2016 that might boost their taxable income, they should consider accelerating those moves into 2015 instead. And they may want to look for other opportunities to shift 2016 income into this year and delay deductions—contrary to the standard tax-planning strategy of trying to delay income and accelerate deductions.

“You used to do this planning in a student’s junior year. Now you need to do it a year earlier,” says Mark Kantrowitz, a financial-aid expert in Las Vegas.

For example, he says parents of high-school sophomores who are considering converting a traditional individual retirement account to a Roth IRA, a move that boosts taxable income, may want to do it before year-end.

Deborah Fox, founder of Fox College Funding LLC in San Diego, advised the business-owning mother of one high-school sophomore to wait until 2016 to establish and contribute to a simplified employee pension plan. She also recommended the woman delay deductible computer purchases until next year and speed up her company’s billing so she receives as much income as possible in 2015.

Ms. Fox advised the family against prepaying their January mortgage and property-tax bills in December as they had planned. And she told the father to see if he can receive his bonus by Dec. 31 instead of in early January.

Before year-end, affected families may want to lock in any capital gains on investments they were planning to sell next year. Children who have investments with embedded capital gains in their own names—such as in a custodial account—should also consider selling before year-end to recognize the gains if the investments will be used for college, says Michael Kitces, partner at Pinnacle Advisory Group in Columbia, Md.

Families should check with their accountants to see how accelerating income or delaying deductions will affect their taxes, Ms. Fox says.

As of now, the base-year change applies only to the Fafsa and not the CSS/Financial Aid Profile, the financial-aid form almost 300 private colleges use to award their own funds. The College Board, which manages the CSS form, says it is “committed to supporting institutions as they make the transition” to prior-prior-year data and is “working closely with our members and leaders at colleges and universities to determine next steps for the CSS/Financial Aid Profile.”

Grandparents will also want to be aware of the change to prior-prior-year numbers on the Fafsa, Mr. Kitces says. When the change kicks in, it will enable them to make financial gifts to college students, including distributions from grandparent-owned 529 college-savings plans, earlier in the college years without those dollars being counted as student income on the Fafsa.

As of the second semester of these students’ sophomore year in college, the prior prior year for their third and fourth years of college will already be over.
