Write a letter to School Counselors

The following letter regarding acceptance of copies of standardised scores by the schools was written to National Council of Admission Counselors(NACAC).There was no responce from them.If you want to save on your application cost you are advised to write to them.This will support the movement. Their email address info@nacac.com

I have been following your activities for the past few months.
The present issues being discussed by you are praise worthy.
I suggest that some more need to be done in order that an international
student is not over burdened with the costs of applying. I have been
helping Indian students to apply to N. American Colleges and have observed
that :

1.Many American Universities and colleges have started charging a higher
application fee for international students vis- a -vis domestic students.
Further with high
competition for admissions each candidate has to apply to several
universities. As such the cost of applying has gone up very much.

2.Added to this is the burden of official score reporting for standardized
tests demanded by almost all colleges.

3. As the universities are likely to justify the application fee
differential by quoting that the cost of communication to international
addresses is more I suggest that initially they need not insist on the
official test
scores.A photostat copy should do to start the process and once
the admission is granted they can ask for official scores.

4.In the present circumstances the student has to report scores to every
university he has applied and even
the university which denies him admission receives it at a cost to the
student. This unnecessarily increases the costs to the international

5. By this small change in the policy of the universities the score will be
reported only once and shall reduce the burden of the candidate. Being an
influential group of people with an association with colleges I suggest
you should take up this matter and consider it positively.

Thanking you
