How are you going to pay your child's upcoming college tuition bill? The time to figure out the answer to that question is now...while there's still time to protect your family's wealth against runaway tuition increases and to reduce your higher education bill by as much as five figures.
College is more unaffordable than ever, and even upper-middle-class families are reeling from the costs. With tuitions topping an astonishing $70,000 a year at some institutions, you'll be expected to come up with more than $1,000 a week for the entire time your child is in school.
If that sounds daunting to you, then you'd better come up with a plan fast. Because college tuition isn't magically going to sort itself out if you simply hide your head in the sand. And there's no magical tuition fairy waiting to sprinkle money from the sky.

"I once had the unusual opportunity to chat with a quiz show champion. Of course, I asked him how he beat his competitors and he replied, ‘Know when to hit the buzzer. Don't guess.’ I was stunned. I had expected him to say that he had spent hours studying encyclopedias or dictionaries but, no, he simply said that he had figured out less obvious but critically important strategies that gave him an edge over equally intelligent peers. Bonnie Snyder's Outsmarting College Admissions, left me with the same impression. The college admissions process shouldn't be a game to win or a code to decipher, but it is. To assume that the process simply rewards those with the highest level of traditional academic aptitude is to be tragically naive. Like the quiz show champ, Dr. Snyder has concrete advice that, while not obvious, is simple to understand and apply. It can set you or your student apart from fellow applicants. With an impressive career in academics and college admissions, Dr. Snyder speaks from experience in a style that is more like coffee with a friend than an audio book. Listening was enjoyable. I learned a lot, I will share her advice with my family and friends, and I have and will continue to recommended her work to students and parents.” —Shawn G., Lancaster, PA
