When students are perfectly capable of writing essays or passing the test on their own, but instead, choose to "bend the rules" ----and just plain cheat ---- to get ahead, is it because they want to take the easy road out? Or, is there something bigger at play? Maybe they fall behind, maybe they panic, or maybe just maybe Jeff Makris has offered some insight regarding how to help students stay honest.
Providing financial aid information can make all the difference—sometimes the difference between filing and not filing the FAFSA and other times the difference between filing correctly and getting in big trouble. For many of the families college counselors work with, this school year is full of firsts: the first time families visit a college, the first time a student applies, they first time the FAFSA is completed, and many more firsts. College Advisers cannot assume that families will have all of the information they need. Conversations about the steps that will be required in order to apply for financial aid as well as clarification about what the forms are asking are important. Learn how to avoid common and complicated mistakes.
