Admissions Just call me
This is going
to take no
time at all.

Here’s a really short
version of my
Let’s talk about getting into college…but I
won’t bore you with all the negative
’t b ith ll th ti
stuff about getting in.
So the question is,
“How do I get in?”
Here’s what every student, even the most
super, supreme, ultra, and mega-talented
student is up against. And it’s so obvious
that no one ever sees it! I call it…
Here’s what happens when you apply to colleges: you’ll apply to
th same schools and compete with students with the same
the h l d t ith t d t ith th
GPAs and same test scores. That’s because some wise person
told you to apply only to schools where you’ve got a chance of
g tt ng n. ght?
getting in. Right?
Now comes the killer question:
Why should any college accept you?
Well, what’s “cool” really mean? It means to be committed to
Well what s cool
something that you really enjoy. The colleges don’t care if it’s
soccer, butterfly collecting, DECA, working at a real job, playing
guitar, football, or singing (sorry, video games don’t count). Be
i t b t h t
passionate about what you l love, or be committed to d i j t one
b itt d t doing just
thing! It’s your ticket to getting in.
But you need some strategies that create a direct path to that
c ll nt nc ith
college entrance with your ticket in hand. There are l ts of
u tick t h nd Th lots f
strategies, and here are 2…
1. Have a telephone relationship with
someone in each admissions office.
2. Have 2 teachers write a story
about one of your character traits for
2 great letters of recommendation.
Okay…I listed just 2 strategies, and I didn’t say how
or why. I’m sorry, but I had to keep this short, and
there are at least 14 more strategies (with very
detailed instructions) that I use with my own students.
And a few more are found in my fast-read and fact-
filled book. There isn t time or space here to keep
going on the admissions issue. So, let’s discuss…
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, but there are some
very practical no-cost ways to afford college. And one
of my strategies, which you’ll never see at a high school
financial aid night, is how to save a minimum of $32,000
in college costs. And that’s PER child without the parent
ever borrowing a dime.
Here’s 1 strategy i 3 easy steps…
H ’ in
Easy Step #1: Have your student spend 15 weeks
each summer before each school year at a real job
and bring home $150 a week. That’s all! Over 4 years,
that’s $9,000 you did not spend on your child’s
expenses at school
I may be way too conservative with my numbers here.
Easy Step #2: Have your student sign up for college
work-study. At a minimum of $500 per semester,
that’s $4,000 over 4 years. Work-study can pay as
high as $2 000 per semester. Not bad!
So far, we have a savings of $13,000 over 4 years –
that’s adding the 2 figures above: $9 000 + $4 000
Now…roll the drums for the BIG ONE…
Easy Step #3: Have your student take
out a government Stafford Loan through
the h l
th school each year for 4 years. Guess
h f G
how much your student receives that you
NEVER sign for? $19 000!
And pay nothing on it until after graduation.
Let’s add it up:
1. $9,000 from 15 weeks of work each year
2. $4,000 of work-study, and
3. $19,000 of one kind of college loan
Total: $32,000 that remain in your retirement account
Okay…you’ve seen just 1 of the most practical 27 strategies you
can use. Really good stuff. They’ll save you thousands of dollars.
Yeah, I know this reads simple, but simple is all I understand how
to do. My clients use these strategies everyday. Now what?...

a surprise waiting for you.You’ll
see something so good for your
student that you may use it
yourself. HINT: it’s About U…
