This week's tip, when applying for financial aid, as the saying goes, the early bird most certainly gets the worm. The earlier you complete the FAFSA, the better. So don't make the mistake of waiting to complete your FAFSA.
Q: The scholarship I'm applying for asks that I complete an essay. The word limit is 500 words. Should I use all 500 words or just respond to the prompt and not worry about the word limit?
A: While we don't encourage you to write with a word limit in mind, we do encourage students to maximize their space by providing as thorough and articulate a response as the word limit allows.
