Minnesota Private College Council
Though many students would prefer to procrastinate as long as possible, ultimately that May 1st deadline will come and a decision must be made. When it comes down to the choice between two or three schools, however, the decision can become very difficult.
The cost may be the most blatant difference between attending a public or private university, but what if the cost turns out to be the same after financial aid? This is when many students are left wondering what each type of school can offer, and whether one is worth more than the other.
During the lazy days of summer, college visits are ususally the last thing on high school students’ mind and the first thing on parents’ minds. But for one week, high school students and their parents can set aside differences and attend bite-sized information sessions at 17 private colleges throughout Minnesota during Minnesota Private Colleges Week (MPCW), June 20-24.
Enrollment in Minnesota’s private colleges held steady this fall, increasing only 1.1 percent from last year.
