HOW DO YOU EVEN GET STARTED?

It's been a long time since I've been through this with my oldest son. Tanner is still trying to figure out what he wants to do, where he wants to go to school, when he wants to go to school. I don't remember how to do this. He came home with all these booklets on everything we need to know, about grants, choosing the right school, scholarships and financial aid basics.

DO YOU HAVE ADVICE?

Do you think getting financial aid to go to college is a good idea?

Do you think kids should work to pay for school, and THEN go to school so they have no debt?

What are the odds that our kids will get great paying jobs coming out of college to pay for those loans?
