How to Get the Best Education for the Best Price

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Come and learn about myths, realities and strategies for Admissions, Financial Aid, Campus Visits, and more.  

Are you asking...

  • How do I decide on a career/area of study?
  • How can I pick the "best college?"
  • How can we pay for college?
  • How is college funding actually awarded?
  • How do we apply for funding?
  • Will I have to settle for a lesser college?

Did you know...

  • Starting early, knowing the rules, and observing deadlines are the most important factors in obtaining college funding?
  • The cost of a 4-year college education can range between $50,000 and $180,000?
  • College funding does not typically go to the students who need it most, but to those who know the most about the process?
  • Over 50% of all students who start college never finish, most often due to the lack of money?
