Dear Student,

This letter was accompanied by a packet and web links with details about scholarships, loans and costs. But many educational and consumer experts think students should not have to wade through booklets and websites to get all the information they need to make wise decisions. They say colleges can and should provide one complete, jargon-free and easy-to-compare page with realistic cost estimates.

Of course, we hope anyone making important life decisions will check with their own trusted financial and personal advisors, not just websites - not even this one!
