The main idea of this paragraph would be telling the reader about three different universities, what the average students made on their ACT and SAT tests, and what the tuitions and and locations are of the three schools.

I would say that this paragraph does answer the question. The paragraph proves to the reader that the cost of attending certain colleges varies.

The paragraph does seem to be written in her own words to a certain extent; however, she should state where she got her information.

I believe that people on the internet will be easily able to understand the paragraph considering the fact that college bound high schoolers should be reading it. After all, this stuff is to help students who attend high school that want some tips on getting to college.
