5. Winning the Educational Lottery > Finding Your Own Statistics

Finding Your Own Statistics

Your job is to find schools, based on your EFC, that will be as generous as possible and avoid those that will gladly educate your child, but leave you in serious debt after the graduation ceremony. Clearly in the two examples that I shared, a school like Grinnell is the superior choice for a student who requires financial assistance.

It’s actually not hard to measure the generosity of any school that interests you. Head to the College Board’s BigFuture website (http://bigfuture.org), which is a destination for families wanting to learn more about finding and affording colleges. Type the name of the school into the search box. Once you reach the school’s profile, click on its Paying tab. Some statistics will be displayed on this page while you will have to click another link—Policies & Stats—to access other figures.
