How to Choose the Best College & Pay For It
October 6, 2022
Feeling some overwhelm as you look ahead at the "college question" for your kids? Where are the best places to apply and how will you (or they) pay for it? In this episode, I interview Brad Baldridge, who specializes in helping families fund college. He gives a useful framework to simplify the college selection process and shares why it's important to start thinking ahead.
Brad Baldridge is a College Funding Specialist, blogger, and podcaster who has helped thousands of families plan and save for college with smart and proven strategies to save time, money and stress. You can find a link to the resources Brad spoke about in the podcast HERE, including an "Expected Family Contribution Calculator" and a list of "Net Costs of Colleges by State."
