Everything you need to know about financial aid-and then some! Today, nearly everyone is eligible for some sort of assistance when it comes to paying for college. With clear prose and irreverent humor, Don't Miss Out explores grants, loans, scholarships, and tax credits. It cuts through the red tape and government jargon. It explodes financial aid myths and teaches families where the money really is-and makes sure they get their fair share! Twenty-four years ago, the first edition of Don't Miss Out was printed in the Leider family basement. Today, Don't Miss Out, written entirely from the viewpoint of parents and students, is still the most unbiased, honest, up-to-date guide available.
