America's 25 Top Colleges With No Application Fees In 2015
This post was written by our friends at forbes.com
How much should it cost to apply to college? At Stanford, which had an acceptance rate of just 5.05% for the class of 2019, the price is $90, the highest of any school on Forbes’ list of 650 top colleges. Other elite institutions aren’t far behind. Duke charges $85 as do Columbia and Boston University. Dartmouth, University of North Carolina‑-Chapel Hill, University of Southern California and Villanova all charge $80 for the privilege. Are those numbers fair, especially at a time when students are applying to ever-greater numbers of schools? Is there an alternative to shelling out all that money just to put in an application to a school where acceptance rates are depressingly low?
