Recession-Induced Stress for Higher Learning System Applicants, Pt. 2


Recession-Induced Stress for Higher Learning System Applicants, Pt. 2

Coggno Inc. | Mar, 27 2009

While GPA, class rank, and community service all play an important role in the admissions process to graduate school learning systems, admission test scores (LSAT, MCAT, PCAT and GRE) can make or break an application. They can also make the difference between receiving a scholarship–which for many students is the only way they’ll be able to afford a higher learning system–and not. Prep courses for admissions tests are another source of financial stress for students.


Nicole Zielinski, Marketing Director for the Princeton Review Boston Branch, says more students are inquiring about scholarships and payment plans for its prep course learning systems. The classroom courses cost between $475 and $1,920, while private tutoring runs anywhere between $3,600 and $10,800, according to the Princeton Review’s website. For many students, these costs are simply out of reach.

Free events such as practice tests, admissions seminars, sample classes and personal statement workshops are also offered by admission prep companies like Kaplan and the Princeton Review.
