Are you a High School student in the Class of 2016?
Bottom Line is now accepting applications for our college application advising services. Please fill out the application below.
To be eligible for Bottom Line's free, one-on-one, year-long college application and financial aid advising services, you must be a resident of Greater Boston, Worcester, New York City or Chicago and be academically eligible to enroll at a four-year college. Also, you must be in the first generation of your family to attend college AND live in a household that meets Bottom Line's income eligibility requirements. See income eligibility chart>>>
This year, Bottom Line is taking part in an independent research study of our programs. This study will provide valuable information about the way students can best be supported in college.
To ensure the study, and application process overall, is completed fairly and accurately, our process for accepting students into the program has two steps:
1. Bottom Line will first determine your eligibility according to the criteria listed above.
2. As many eligible students as possible will be selected for our program via lottery.
Bottom Line receives applications from more eligible students than we can serve. This lottery gives each eligible student an equal chance of being selected for the program.
Your application will be reviewed by Bottom Line staff, who will be in contact with you throughout the process. We will e-mail you within a week to confirm that your application has been received and is being reviewed.
