FAFSA Delays Likely to Slow College Decisions. ‘It’s a Real Mess,’ Expert Says. Here’s What to do If Your Financial Aid Letter Is Late

"In an already tumultuous year for college hopefuls, news that financial aid award letters will likely be late is the latest blow. The delay puts high school seniors under pressure to decide on a college with little or no time to weigh the most important factor: cost," CNBC reports.

..."'With this last-minute news, our nation’s colleges are once again left scrambling as they determine how best to work within these new timelines to issue aid offers as soon as possible — so the students who can least afford higher education aren’t the ones who ultimately pay the price for these missteps,' said Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators."
