ICYMI – Weekly Financial Aid Coffee Klatch – April 7 – April 11


Weekly summary coffee klatchI want to start off the week by saying thank you to all those who I tweeted with last week that enjoyed my new articles and my guest posts. Its always refreshing to meet new people and help students and their parents make the most of their financial aid opportunities.

Since I am starting to go through a lot of content each week, I have decided to wrap up the weeks activities by showcasing the content I put out, and the best curated content. I am highlighting the best article/post , you-tube video, and podcasts I managed to find all week. Also the worst tweet of the week concerning scholarships, financial aid, and admissions.

Worst Tweet of the Week

the college money mans worst tweets of the week

This weeks award goes to @lessiasmore for the tweet that shows that some kids just hate the effort of scholarship applications. For any parent reading this, take heart! In all likelihood she will do a poor job of paying attention, miss fine details, and ultimately not win. If your kids is competing for the same funds, their odds of winning just got better. Thanks Alessia for opting out so the motivated can move forward.  Quick note; poor attitudes usually result in poor outcomes.
