Delaying your college application a few months could cost you $20,000! This is just one of the many things we learned during our conversation with Certified College Counselor, Elisia Howard. She has been in education for fifteen years and worked in college admissions for five years before starting College Insights in 2015. At College Insights, Elisia helps students navigate college decisions through academic advising, resume building, and applying to the right schools. She is passionate about students avoiding the crippling financial burdens that tend to accompany student loans, so this is a really valuable conversation for anyone considering college, for students who are currently in school, and even for graduates who already have student loans as we cover that as well.
Start with Fastweb and Scholly if you’re looking for scholarships, but definitely check out College Insights as Elisia’s company has some great free resources. If time is of the essence, then give them a call at 425-507-9069 and you can find them on LinkedIn, Instagram, and FB.
