Fair Opportunity Project’s College Application Guide is a free resource organized a team of 20+ college students, 10 advisors, and 200 high school counselors from across the nation to write a free college admissions and financial aid guide that has been reviewed and praised by many of the nation’s leading college admissions committees. To be clear, this is an independent project and no one is making money from it. Our team doesn’t like the disparity in resources between students who can afford private college consultants and those who can’t. They believe that all students should have free access to the best college application and financial aid information, regardless of background.  Sep 22, 2016, 12:25 PM Terri Morrison
