During this presentation with guest Richard Montauk, parents and teens will explore the options for financing a university education in top schools. We’ll take a look at the options (from graduating college early to attending free(ish) colleges).
This presentation will include an overview of co-op programs, starting at community college, undergraduate options in the U.S., undergraduate degrees abroad, combining programs, and more.
Although the focus of this presentation is strategic in nature, it will be filled with examples illustrating how to strategically plan for a university education, and how to plan financially.
Note: this presentation will not cover the usual, insufficient solutions to the problem: getting need-based financial aid, merit aid, or third-party scholarships, or saving for college in a tax-efficient manner. Instead, we’ll look at dozens of inexpensive options at both the undergraduate and graduate levels (while retaining our focus on elite universities).
Substantial time will be available at the end of the presentation for questions.
