How Smart Students Pay For School The Best Way to Save for College, Get the Right Loans, and Repay Debt ( CD)
|Author: Reyna/ Mitchell Gobel|
|Getting into college is just as hard as figuring out how to pay for it. Too often prospective students and their parents are unarmed and charge head on into mountains of unmanaged debt. Reyna Gobel's original audio program is a salve to worries about student loans. With practical advice for students planning for college, evaluating financial aid packages, and advice for parents, The Class You Cannot Skip is the first course everyone should take before heading to college. It is also the course many may have missed: Reyna Gobel devotes several sections to helping students manage the debt they currently have, from recent graduates to those who have been out of school for a decade and want to purchase a house with student loan debt on the books. The New York Times reported this year that student loan debt outpaced credit card debt for the first time and is likely to top a trillion dollars this year as more students go to college and a growing share borrow money to do so. Last year graduates who took out loans, left college with an average of $24,000 in debt. The Class You Cannot Skip removes the stigma from accruing debt and educates consumers on how to wisely manage their loans so they can live the life they want. Whether you have $2,000 or $42,000 in student loan debt, this audio is a must-have.|
