College is increasingly becoming one of the only ways to obtain a job that one will find both emotionally and financially rewarding--however paying for school can make it seem impossible for many students. This straight forward and honest guide from Washington Monthly walks students, families, and counselors through selecting the right colleges, applying to them and paying for the education. The book begins with a section on goal setting then quickly moves into advice on finding a college that works for the individual, understanding community college transfer and applying successfully. Also included are tips about making the most of your education, applying for jobs afterwards and transitioning from living with your parents to living on your own. Checklists, tables, surveys and other helpful info-graphs breakdown difficult choices to make options more apparent. Annotation Â©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
