These days, most of the people assume you want to pay a boatload of money for a quality college education. As a result, students and their parents are willing to go into years of debt and potentially sabotage their entire financial futures just to get a fancy name on their diploma.
But Zac Bissonnette is walking proof that this assumption is not only false, but dangerous-a class con game designed to rip you off and doom your student to a post-graduation life of near poverty . From his unique double perspective-he’s a personal finance expert (at Daily Finance) AND a current senior at the University of Massachusetts-Zac figured out how to get an outstanding education at a public college, without bankrupting his parents or taking on massive loans.
Armed with his personal knowledge, the latest data, and smart analysis, Zac takes on the sacred cows of the higher education establishment. He reveals why a large number of the conventional wisdom about choosing and financing college is not only fallacious but hazardous to you and your child’s financial future. You’ll be able to discover, for instance, that:
* Student loans are NOT a necessary evil. Abnormal middle class families can- and must-find ways to avoid them, even without scholarships.
* College “rankings” are useless-designed to sell magazines and generate hype. If you believe one of the vital major guides when picking a college, you face a potential financial disaster.
* The elite graduate programs accept a lot of people with non-elite bachelors degrees. So do The united states’s most selective employers. The name on a diploma ultimately won’t help your child have a more successful career or earn more money.
Zac can prove every one of those bold assertions – and more. No matter what your current financial situation, he has a simple message for parents: “RELAX! Your kid will be able to get a champagne education on a beer budget!”
