In my mind, opportunity is economic. Whether that means saving money or making money. Trying to find the economic opportunity in the college application process can be tricky. First there’s getting in to the college of choice. Then there’s getting financial assistance. It takes a village to raise a child – it takes ‘a package’ to get that child through college.
Here are some of the financial aspects of the college application process that parents may want to consider. It’s a college application checklist for those in the beginning stages.
Some people feel as if they have to become very rich, or really poor to get the package that they need. I say no matter what the personal situation is, you have to be informed and strategic. Hopefully, this will help you think about some strategies.
There is life after college.
