Manage episode 357913306 series 3401728
On today’s show, we’ll hear from Ron Lieber, a personal finance columnist for The New York Times, whose latest book, “The Price You Pay for College,” should be required reading for anyone with a kid nearing college.
Ron wrote a whole chapter on sports scholarships, and his advice on how to find money for college when your sports scholarship falls short will come in handy for lots of you (trust me, if you don’t know that already, you will soon!).
Ron shares insights on:
➨ How to talk to coaches about money even when your kid has reservations about you asking them
➨ How to tease information out of coaches that can help you understand how much money your family is likely to get
➨ What you should expect to pay for college after all the discounts are applied
➨ The tough conversations you should be having as a family about the cost of college and how soon you should have those conversations
➨ And what questions you should ask college admissions and financial aid officers that can help turn up extra grants and scholarships for your family
