SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The cost of college has continued to outpace the cost of living. On Thursday, Nov. 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.

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. The 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.
