From the Department of Education a video entitled- After the FAFSA: What happens next https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JQxorQ9s_pY

The Project on Student Debt website has some solid information to help keep families informed about borrowing for college and the implications it has: http://projectonstudentdebt.org

From the National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC) a great informational booklet:Students’ Rights and Responsibilities in the College Admissions Process: http://www.nacacnet.org/research/PublicationsResources/Marketplace/student/Documents/StudentsRtsNEW.pdf

The article entitled “8 College Degrees with the worst return on investment” should stimulate some terrific dinner table conversations.

Brad. Just remember pal...it is now what you know but who you know. Before your son or daughter decide to go to college be sure they are offered a job FIRST. Ideally they woud incurr ALL education costs. Tell them it is not what you know but who you know that REALLY counts
