How to choose a college based on EFC

Once you have your EFC, You’ll have a good starting point for deciding where to go to college. If your EFC is low, you’ll want to focus on schools that will meet 100% of demonstrated need (remember we discussed this in email #1?) If your EFC is high, a college that offers lots of merit-based aid is the way to go. There are lots of different situations and options, and we can help you work through them all.
