Lisa Bleich and Beth Cassie to present Owning the Application Process: Developing your College List Without Going Broke at the Scotch Plains Public Library

On Thursday, November 30 at 7 pm, Lisa Bleich and Beth Cassie of College Bound Mentor will present Owning the Application Process: Developing your College List Without Going Broke.

The cost of college has continued to outpace the cost of living. This interactive workshop will describe the different types of financial aid available, demystify the financial aid process, shed light on how to find a good financial fit, and develop a plan to graduate college without crippling debt.

This interactive seminar will use The College Application Wheel™ to help students figure out their unique angle for success and how best to target merit scholarships.

Bleich and Cassie will walk through several case studies of actual students who addressed their college search in a financially strategic way. They will also identify opportunities for students in this market who do not have any financial constraints.

Advanced registration is recommended for this program. To register, call the Reference Desk at 908-322-5007 x204.

Scotch Plains Public Library is located at 1927 Bartle Avenue, one block from Park Avenue in the center of town.
