Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
For millions of families, the college planning experience has become extremely stressful. And, unless your child is an elite student in the academic top 1%, most books on the subject won’t help you.
Now, however, there’s a college guide for everyone. In The College Solution, top personal finance journalist Lynn O’Shaughnessy presents an easy-to-use roadmap to finding the right college program (not just the most hyped) and dramatically reducing the cost of college, too.
Forget the rankings! Discover what really matters: the quality and value of the programs your child wants and deserves.
O’Shaughnessy uncovers “industry secrets” on how colleges actually parcel out financial aid—and how even “average” students can maximize their share. Learn how to send your kids to expensive private schools for virtually the cost of an in-state public college…and how promising students can pay significantly less than the “sticker price” even at the best state universities.
No other book offers this much practical guidance on choosing a college…and no other book will save you as much money!
