Yesterday I had a great conversation with Blaine Blontz, founder of FinancialAidCoach.com, about the things we wish you all knew about the financial aid process when you're applying to college, including:

  • Common mistakes people make in the financial aid process that cost them real money
  • How early to start the financial aid process
  • Some strategies for maximizing your need-based aid
  • Advice for non-traditional, adult, and first-gen students
  • That national scandal known as the FAFSA
  • How assets are treated differently from income
  • What to do if your 2019 tax returns don't reflect your circumstances in 2020
  • How to ask for reconsideration of your financial aid award

Have a listen!
