The College Bound Organizer

The Ultimate Guide to Successful College Applications

By Anna Costaras, Gail Liss
Nearly three million students are expected to enroll as first-time freshmen in degree-granting institutions in the United States this school year. Each of these students will apply to many schools — five, 10, perhaps as many as 20 — and each of those applications has a daunting number of T’s to cross and I’s to dot. With standardized test taking and school visits, essays to write and forms to fill out, there is so much to do. It goes without saying that a student also attends school, keeps up homework, maintains that spot on the team or the lead role in the school play, volunteers at the local soup kitchen and possibly even holds down a part-time job. Applying to college is intimidating and overwhelming for both teenagers and their parents. The challenge is to be well informed, prepared, focused and organized throughout the multistep college search and admission process. The solution is The College Bound Organizer, the ultimate guide to help students effectively navigate this very complicated and stressful process. The book helps students: • Build a personal profile • Plan a individualized testing schedule • Research colleges to identify schools that are a good fit • Develop a balanced list of schools • Complete and submit applications • Apply for financial aid and scholarships • Meet all deadlines • Sort through and manage application results • Make a final decision Author tips and advice, and interviews with admission professionals offer insight into the process, including what admission officers are looking for in an applicant, common mistakes students make on their applications and when applying for financial aid, and other valuable information.

The Feminist Financial Handbook

By

Sometimes the best way to stick it to the man is by doing well for yourself. There’s just one problem: it’s hard to do well for yourself when systemic oppression has placed innumerable hurdles between you and your aspirations. THE FEMINIST FINANCIAL HANDBOOK provides actionable tips for overcoming these obstacles without dulling the visceral experience of the real-life struggles women face as they try to master their money and their lives. Because women’s experiences don’t exist in a vacuum relegated to their gender, the handbook explores financial issues with anecdotes and perspectives of women of different races, sexual orientations and abilities. Whether you want to learn more about general money principles, like saving or earning a higher income, or delve into issues that disproportionately affect women, like the wage gap or the long road to economic recovery after experiencing domestic violence, you’ll find stories and advice from women who have been there, worked through the struggle, and achieved their goals.
