The 10 Deadliest Mistakes

Mistake # 1

Most middle and upper-middle class parents assume they won't be eligible for financial aid because they have a ton of equity in their home and make over $100,000.00 per year.

Mistake # 2

Focusing your time and energy solely on private scholarships instead of trying to learn strategies to access and maximize aid from other sources.

Mistake # 3

Assuming only minority students, athletes, exceptionally gifted students get financial aid and merit scholarships.

Mistake # 4

Picking colleges and universities without paying attention to where your student lies in comparison to the rest of the student body.

Mistake # 5

Assuming all schools are created equal and will be able to give you the same amounts of money.

Mistake # 6

Not understanding the difference between "included assets" and " legally sheltered assets" to be completed on the FAFSA or CSS Profile.

Mistake # 7

It doesn't matter where I keep my money. 
It's all counted the same way, anyway.

Mistake # 8

My CPA or tax preparer is familiar and qualified to fill out financial aid forms -- I'll let him/her do it."

Mistake # 9

Waiting until January or even worse, after January of your child's senior year of high school, to get started working on your college financial aid planning.
And another mistake, "My Financial Planner understands late stage college planning."

Mistake # 10

Going through the financial aid process by yourself because it's "Cheaper."
