Maximize Your Financial Aid Potential
|The misconceptions are that private colleges are only for the rich, that Ivy
League graduates are successful, that if I went there my kid will get in, that
only poor families qualify for financial aid, that if you get turned down once
you are through, affirmative action is gone, Congress is cutting way back, and
that it is already too late to start saving for college. You do understand that
these are misconceptions and hold little or no weight?
|The solution is that you must become an informed buyer.
Itís necessary that you learn to market the student to colleges. And
position the student in the right college and the right career track. To get
the jobs they want and to succeed in them, students need to start planning
for the future now. As a parent, you are in an excellent position to help
your child prepare for a satisfying career. Studies show that parents have
more influence than anyone else on their childrenís educational and career
planning. But few parents have the information and resources to handle this
role. For many parents this will be their first experience with the maze of
paperwork required to apply to colleges and apply for grants, scholarships,
and loans. For those who have done it before, once may be one time too many
and the thought of doing it for another student is not something to be
thrilled about. The Professionals at College For All can help you benefit by
becoming a wise consumer.
