Mackenzie O. | Freshman - Nova High School
"The course explains how students have this amazing opportunity to learn how to get financial aid for college! I love how they have notes and links at the end of every video. Having a Four-Year High School planner and then walking me through how to understand each section is really helpful and is helping me stay organized!"
Manuel M. | Junior - Ronald W. Reagan Doral High School
"The data from the videos is restated in the next slide which helps visual learners like me. The best thing is that they give real-life examples when explaining things such as living-off campus and how to get scholarships! I'm already using some of them to help me set my reach, target and safety schools!"
Melanie W. | Sophomore - Nova High School
"Our family has been looking into the course a lot! All the information in it is super useful and has helped us understand how the college admissions and financial aid system works!"
Co-Founders of Best College Aid & Instructors
With the help of college admissions experts and a financial advisor, we created a step-by-step guide to help you pay less for college.
This guide helped us earn over $500,000 in both need and merit-based financial aid!
THINKING OF JOINING BUT STILL UNSURE?
Most common misconceptions from parents who do not join:
"I can learn to do this by myself."
Yes, we do not doubt that. However, the admissions game has changed A LOT in the last few years. Not to mention that it can be very difficult to become an expert on college admissions and financial aid if you are working more than 40 hours per week!
"I can just read stuff on the internet and watch videos online."
A lot of the stuff on the internet is outdated and confusing. As you will come to find out, the information online is not organized and can result in hours wasted and irreversible financial mistakes! That is why we decided to create a step-by-step guide for you with organized and up-to-date information.
"My child's high school counselor will take care of it."
The average student-to-high school counselor is over 400-to-1. Odds are your child is not getting the help he or she deserves at his or her high school.
"The course is too expensive."
The price of Best College Aid is a small investment when compared to the price of a four-year education. As of 2020, some colleges are charging more than $70,000 per year! In four years, that would be $280,000 you'd have to pay for your child's education.
