    How Close Are You to the Cap

    How Close Are You to the Cap

    Collegenet.com has a scholarship cap set at $10,000 and I was wondering where any of you might be? Sammy has recently reached the cap so how many more scholarships do you believe you may be able to earn from this site? Do you think the cap should be raised or eliminated entirely?

    Re: How Close Are You to the Cap

    The cap should stay where it is - spread the money out a little bit and $10K is a lot of money as it is.

    When I first started CNET the cap was pretty new. Regardless, though raising the cap would be nice for those still looking for ways to pay for school... $10,000 is still an amazing amount. Share the wealth :)

    Hey Believe,

    No I'm not close to getting my cap, and honestly I probably never will. I joined a long time ago but had no idea how any of this worked so I was worried I was going to do it wrong ha ha. I was very happy when I started posting, but I'll be out of school way before I even get close to the 10k gap. Right now my winnings are around 4k so I still have a lot to go, but I have been very fortunate in not having to take out loans while I've gone to school. I wish I could convince my brother to join so he can get some help paying for things!


    Have a great day!

    Good morning!

    I am a newbie when it comes to College Net. I mean I joined awhile back but didn't really know what to do so I forgot all about College Net. But with college right around the corner I need all the help I can get. So I'm dedicated to this now and with the help of a family friend who has capped out hopefully I can as well. Sadly at the moment I haven't received any scholarships yet but it's only been a few days!

    Thanks for reading!

    Hello Believe,

    I'm still a long ways away from my cap, but I'm confident that if I stay consistent, I'll eventually reach it! I have two more years of school till I'll get my Bachelor's, so that should leave me plenty of time. The 10K cap is extremely generous as it stands, and I don't think it should be increased. That's one thing I love about C-Net - there isn't just one winner, but many. This makes winning a scholarship less of a competition, and more of a team effort.

    Thanks!
