Why Are American Colleges Obsessed With 'Leadership'?
The Atlantic
Earlier this month, more than 700,000 students submitted the Common Application for college admissions.
Alexander Cruz's insight:

I've always thought that college applications are always a bit weird when it comes to personal attributes. Not everyone is a leader. I've seen people who have changed the world who have done things by themselves. That's what kind of person I am.

Countdown to College: Don't delay filling out FAFSA form
Sacramento Bee
If one of your New Year's resolutions had something to do with helping your child find scholarship money for college, then your first order of business is to complete the FAFSA.
Alexander Cruz's insight:

I feel lucky that the school made us do the FAFSA. So many people probably miss out on financial aid and go into a hole that is extremely hard to get out of.

Avoiding Scams | Federal Student Aid

Avoiding Scams | Federal Student Aid | Alex's Project of Getting into College | Scoop.it
Avoid scams while searching for scholarships, filling out the FAFSA, and giving personal information to schools and lenders. Remember, www.fafsa.gov is the official site to fill out the FAFSA for free!
Alexander Cruz's insight:

Reading this article is important to figure out that the government is there to help you. Don't be fooled by scams. You are given the opportunity to go to college and get aid to pay for it.

I already knew that the FAFSA had its own website but many people don't and are swallowed into debt before they even go to college or they are even scammed by identity thefts and are cheated out of thousands of dollars.

Read the article. Don't be fooled.

Alexander Cruz's insight:

It is important to understand that there are plenty of companies out there trying to help you but they are failing to realize that the SAT is not that hard and that the only official practice SAT is provided by The College Board.
