Abby Millard

Gordon was able to offer me financial aid that was quite competitive with the larger, second choice school that I was considering. More importantly, the financial aid counselors sought individual conversations with my family and me, and were willing to adjust my award based on our personal financial situation. Ultimately, the financial aid that Gordon offered made it possible for me to come here when my decision was down to the wire.
