Editorial Reviews

Review

"Confusion and apprehension often drive families into the arms of private counselors, who offer, for a price, to help them master the [student aid] system. They would be well advised to save their money and consult McPherson and Schapiro instead."--Donald Kennedy, Atlantic Monthly

"Because they are primarily interested in how federal policy might more effectively open the doors to college for low-income youth, McPherson and Schapiro, like good economists, analyze the effects of financial-aid programs on the incentives of colleges and parents, and anticipate the impact of recent changes in the tax code on colleges' tuition and aid policies."--Harvard Magazine

From the Inside Flap

"This is a wonderful book. The authors' many years of thinking about admissions and financial aid policies and their econometric research on the topic provide the foundations for a nontechnical book that addresses many of the fundamental issues facing society, federal and state government, individual institutions, and students and their families."--Ronald Ehrenberg, Cornell University

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent economic study of how financial aid affects the decisions of undergraduates to attend institutions, including whether to attend or not. The Student Aid Game should be read by anyone interested in making college more accessable to those who are qualified to attend but can not afford it. Schapiro and McPherson demonstrate that increasing Federal Financial Aid greatly increases the participation of minorities and the poor. It is not, however, a book designed to help parents manuever through the paper jungle of financial aid offers and dealing with financial aid offices. Their goal is far more grand, pushing for policy changes that will increase the opportunities minorities and poor americans have to attend institutions of higher learning

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A scholarly statistical work on the trends of how student aid is being disbursed in the United States. Good analysis of the what is driving student aid offices; how they are in transition and sometimes have conflicting objectives. Little help to parents/students trying to weave through the financial aid maze. The reader can assume why dealing with financial aid offices can be so difficult; but the stage is set to provide more specifics which are not included.
