Applying to colleges can get pretty expensive. Stanford University, for example, charges $90 and they only accept about 6% of applicants. The College Board recommends applying to five to eight schools to be on the safe side. With an average cost to apply of $37.88 per application (US News and World Report), the cost can add up quickly.
