How I Paid for an Outstanding College Education Without Loans, Scholarships, orM ooching off My Parents

This book can save you more than $100,000. These days, most people assume you need 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 lot of the conventional wisdom about choosing and financing college is not only wrong but hazardous to you and your child's financial future. You'll discover, for instance, that: * Student loans are NOT a necessary evil. Ordinary 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 trust one of the major guides when picking a college, you face a potential financial disaster. * The elite graduate programs accept lots of people with non-elite bachelors degrees. So do America'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!"

The Ultimate Guide to Sending Your Kids to the Best, Most Expensive Colleges in America for Pennies on the Dollar!

This book is the best introduction to getting free money scholarships and grants. It is a "must read" for the parents of college-bound high school students who don't want to blow all their money on college tuition and expenses. Parents of college-bound high school students often ask when the best time is to get free money in the form of scholarships and grants to help pay for college. The answer is simple, but how you get to the answer is not. The best time to get the free money you are seeking to help pay for your students college education is January, February, and March of their senior year. That's the time when the colleges and universities are flush with scholarship and grant money. When the "free money" gets low, or is gone, it naturally becomes increasingly difficult to get any free money. In fact, if you wait too long, the only way to get money for college is through student loans and parent loans. This is an easy (but unbelievably expensive) way to pay for college. Why? It's expensive because you (or your child), could easily pay an additional $50,000 to $100,000+ in interest and finance charges. The not so simple answer to this question often shocks parents: Your best chance of getting the big money actually starts between the 7th and 10th grades. Some parents gasp when they find out. That's because they think that the 11th grade is the appropriate time to start planning for college. In the old days this was probably true. However, today everything has changed. The cost of college is much more than it ever was in the past. In fact, it's such a huge investment to get a college degree ($100,000 to $200,000+), the only thing more expensive in life will be the purchase of a family home in a nice neighborhood, or paying for a catastrophic illness if you have no health insurance. If you have a college-bound high school student, you are in for a big financial surprise. It'll be a big surprise because you and your student are going to have to come up with $20,000 to $60,000 PER YEAR, until your student graduates. If you are lucky and have really good student, this will be 4 consecutive years. For not so lucky parents and students, this could easily drag out to 5-7 years. If you don't have the money to throw at this "cash-eating monster," you are going to have to borrow the money through student loans, second mortgages, or dip into your retirement savings. Or, you can simply tell your student that the only way they are going to college is to get student loans or to go to a cheap community college and start with an AA degree. There are billions of dollars of free money scholarships and grants available to all college-bound high school students. The problem is that most parents are too busy living their lives, raising their families, and earning a living to take the time and expertise to find out where all this money is and how to get it. This is where this book can help you. If you are sincerely interested in sending your kids to the top colleges in America for pennies on the dollar, please read this book right away and be prepared to learn ways you can get free money scholarships and grants to cover the costs, and which colleges and universities are most likely to give your student money to attend their school.

A Path Forward

Scores of talented and dedicated people serve the forensic science community, performing vitally important work. However, they are often constrained by lack of adequate resources, sound policies, and national support. It is clear that change and advancements, both systematic and scientific, are needed in a number of forensic science disciplines to ensure the reliability of work, establish enforceable standards, and promote best practices with consistent application. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward provides a detailed plan for addressing these needs and suggests the creation of a new government entity, the National Institute of Forensic Science, to establish and enforce standards within the forensic science community. The benefits of improving and regulating the forensic science disciplines are clear: assisting law enforcement officials, enhancing homeland security, and reducing the risk of wrongful conviction and exoneration. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States gives a full account of what is needed to advance the forensic science disciplines, including upgrading of systems and organizational structures, better training, widespread adoption of uniform and enforceable best practices, and mandatory certification and accreditation programs. While this book provides an essential call-to-action for congress and policy makers, it also serves as a vital tool for law enforcement agencies, criminal prosecutors and attorneys, and forensic science educators.
