On Thursday, Nov. 30 at 7:00 p.m., Lisa Bleich and Beth Cassie of College Bound Mentor will present Owning the Application Process: Developing your College List Without Going Broke.

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.
