October started off just as busy as September! As my son works feverishly on both his college essay and Common Application, I am focusing my efforts on the financial application process. From one parent to another, I truly believe that this is a critically important step to take. If you want to tap into available sources of funding for college, then it is essential to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The financial aid application process can seem daunting, but planning for educational expenses is a necessary endeavor, so time to get going!
