Getting Financial Aid 2018 by College Board
This is a great guide for financial aid advice. After all, who is better qualified to explain the CSS/Financial Aid Profile than the people who created it and administer it?
Paying for College Without Going Broke, 2020 Edition by Princeton Review
This is an extremely popular book that has drawn many rave reviews from our clients over the years. Comprehensive information on the financial aid forms, negotiating tactics for the financial aid offices (this is worth a try but certainly not something to pin too many hopes on), tax breaks, and unusual circumstances such as single parents and adult students are addressed as well.
The Sports Scholarships Insider’s Guide: Getting Money for College at Any Division 2nd Edition by Dion Wheeler
Most college athletes weren’t heavily recruited, i.e. they didn’t receive multiple offers from major programs years before their senior year of high school. Many more athletes aren’t affiliated with a strong travel team program that can help them. And that’s who this book benefits — the many high school athletes seeking sound advice on how to best leverage their particular athletic talents in the college application process.
