“Everyone overpays for college. To what degree depends on what you know, or don’t know.”
You can’t just accept the cost of college if you want to save college costs.
You can’t just let the college dictate costs if you want to save college costs.
You can’t just approach college blindly if you want to save college costs.
You can’t wait on this unless you’re willing to overpay for college.
The foundation for success is found within the power of your knowledge, the power of your understanding, and the strength of your purpose. In order to manage the expense of college, you need to treat it on the same level of business as they treat it. They have it figured out and they figure you don’t.
Your upcoming college represents a business deal between you and the college. Whereas, the college is the service-provider, you are the buyer. Whereas, they are in the business of selling educational services, you are in the market of buying educational services. It’s a process similar to buying a house. To win your best deal, you need to understand all components of cost and market value while learning how to leverage negotiations and appeals into larger awards. It’s not for the faint of heart. But if you are concerned about college costs, then it’s important to get the right deal.
