Davenport, Iowa (PressExposure) June 01, 2009 -- Toms Shoes does it. Isnât a college education more important than a pair of shoes?
Scott Anderson and RealCollegeSavings.com want you to give away what heâs worked so hard for over the past nine years. Starting this month, for every copy purchased of The Secrets to Real College Savings, Scott will be giving away a copy to a needy student.
âIâm heartbroken by the number of students who still believe a college education is out of reach simply because no one has told them any different,â says Mr. Anderson.
College is affordable and is within reach of students if you know how the system is set up and know the basics of the strategies to follow. Here is the quick overview... 1. Lower your baseline financial aid calculation 2. Apply to colleges with the most generous financial track records 3. Position the student to look most appealing to the schools 4. Know how to negotiate with the colleges 5. Utilize smart money management practices
âThese strategies work,â says Mr. Anderson, âIf a student just stops listening to the nay-sayers and applies a strategic approach to college selection, they can very easily afford a college education.â Scott uses the example of one of his pro-bono clients this year who didnât think she could go to college. Using the strategies outlined in The Secrets to Real College Savings, Robin Evans was able to get into the college of her choice with practically no out of pocket costs. And it wasnât just that one college that came through; she had five incredibly generous offers from five different colleges to choose from.
The giveaway will start this summer with one book given away for one book purchased. As the summer goes along, RealCollegeSavings.com will give away 3 for each purchased, and eventually 5 for each purchased.
Scott Anderson is requesting help from others in this endeavor. He wants those who give away the book to post their experiences on the website at http://www.RealCollegeSavings.com. There, they can also let the company know to whom they want to give their copy if they do not want to give it away personally.
