When it asks for the desired cost in the Decide Portfolio, does that mean cost per year or cost of all four years?Answered
In the "My Portfolio" in the Decide section, it asks for the desired cost that we want to negotiate. Is that the cost of all four years or just one?

its per year
When uploading documents to Advocate, you are asked to enter your "desired cost" -- this is the one-year out-of-pocket expense you are hoping a given school will offer you. For example, your desired cost at Northeastern could be $18,000 per year. You are not asked to enter a net cost; we extract this from your uploaded aid letters automatically.
Knowing your desired cost is helpful in communicating directly with the admissions and financial aid office at colleges. It helps you be transparent about what works for you, allowing the schools to do everything possible to help you. I hope this helps!
