Sep 16, 2019

This is the last episode in a three-part series on paying for college. My guest is Joan Liu, a college counselor who has a giant heart to go with her giant brain. In this episode she draws on her years of experience helping international students who need financial aid in order to attend college in the US. We cover a range of topics that will apply to both students and counselors, including: 

  • How is the application process different for students who need full financial aid?
  • For counselors, how is working with a full-financial aid students different than other students?
  • What are common mistakes students (and counselors) make in applying for financial aid?
  • What do students need to know about getting full financial aid in the US?
  • How do students figure out which schools meet full need?
  • What can students and counselors do if a student doesn’t get their need met?
  • Where do students begin?
