This is going to sound weird but it might help to mention to various people in your life where your kids is applying to college. Why ? My son's friend mentioned his choices to my son. My son mentioned to me at which point I said, "you know that if Dad fills out a form as an alum, [your friend] will get some money automatically.

Everything got done and his friend got $2K in scholarship money just from getting my husband to sign a half page form.

When they were heading to a basketball game on Friday night, his friend stopped in specifically to thank my husband. Nice kid.
