    The Price You Pay For College

    The Price You Pay For College

    Why does college cost so much? What really goes on in financial aid offices in this country, and will going to college pay off in the end? These are all big questions we’ve explored before on this podcast, and in today’s episode, I’m speaking with an expert guest who has literally written the book on this important subject.
    Ron Lieber is the author of The Price You Pay for College: An Entirely New Road Map for the Biggest Financial Decision Your Family Will Ever Make, and what he shares today will give you a very different perspective on all things money, as it relates to the college admissions process.
    As you’ve heard me talking about in recent episodes, the Ivy League Formula Program is our intensive 6-month college consulting program, and it’s opening for enrollment very soon. Do keep in mind! We are only accepting 30 students this round, and it will only be open once or twice this year. To be notified when The Ivy League Formula Program opens up, you can put yourself on the waitlist at http://juliekimconsulting.com/waitlist, and Passion Project Bootcamp members will be given priority for the first spots that are available.
    To learn the strategies that help our students get accepted into amazing colleges using their Passion Projects, check out our free training at https://juliekimconsulting.com/masterclass.
    As always, if you have questions please reach out to our support team at info@juliekimconsulting.com.
    I hope you find this episode informative and helpful as you explore the financial aspects of college. Remember, ultimately is it you that is responsible for the outcome you will achieve, and no one else. This is why I highly recommend picking up a copy of Ron’s book because it will be one of the best investments you (or your parents) will ever make as you embark on this journey.
    Thanks for listening and see you next week with a brand new episode!

5 factors of success

I love this episode! Other podcasts talk about the mechanics of the college process, but I so agree with you that the student’s mindset is the most important factor. I sent this to my daughter. You articulated this better than I could. Thank you!
