Local College Aid Foundation Saves Parents $12, 757 In College Expenses!

NYC, NY-Irving was really mad now. "I can't believe I'm getting nailed this bad. I seem to be supporting the entire university myself," he thought to himself. Once again, he had to write a big check for his son's tuition. Once again he had been told by the school's financial aid officer that, "There is nothing you can do about it. You know that we're doing all that we can to help you. "

Somehow Irving knew that the school's financial aid officer had to be working against him. "He must be. Why else would he be so willing to roll over and play dead for the university." As Irving finished subtracting the amount of the check to the school from his checkbook, he was staring at a pile of unread newspapers on the coffee table. There was a headline on yesterday's paper that said, "College-Costs Rising At An Average of 7.8% Per Year; Many Parents Worried!"

Irving started to get hyper. He read the article and got even worse. The report explained how the rise in college costs will have to be shouldered by new students and their parents. The story went on to say that while higher fees and tuition are inevitable, there were still many loopholes and strategies to legally reduce the amount of money any student and parent would be required to pay out of their own pockets. And that most parents of college bound students never used even a small percentage of the secrets the colleges preferred people didnŐt know.

"If people only knew how many ways there are to reduce their out of pocket costs, they wouldn't be complaining too loudly!" The article added.

Irving had enough. "I'm going to fight back legally, I'll never again be so na•ve." He knew that starting tomorrow he was going to stop worrying and take action. As he picked up the telephone, he vowed that he was going learn "The 9 New Ways to Beat The High Cost of College!" A copy of this FREE REPORT is available by calling the 24 hour toll-free recorded message line 800-899-0725.

This report is written by David Michaels, RFP a noted speaker, author, financial advisor, as well as a leading expert in the area of college funding. Michaels also conducts workshops in various high schools where he addresses the PTA and provides its members with information on financial aid. He also assists parents in their interactions with different colleges and helps them receive better financial aid packages for their students. For more information call (718) 224-6836.
