Episode #160, Lynn O’Shaughnessy, How to Get Smarter About The College Planning Process

On episode 160, Alexis Avila speaks to Lynn O’Shaughnessy, a nationally recognized college expert, who is a higher-ed journalist, speaker educator, and founder of The College Solution. As former Los Angeles Times reporter, Lynn has written and been interviewed about college issues for such national outlets as The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. On today’s episode, Lynn helps us understand ways to better afford college and how to get smarter about the college planning process.

 

Lynn’s advice to parents:

  1. Stop fixation on only getting into ivy league schools. There are plenty of good schools out there. Fixating on only a few name brand schools will only put stress on your kid.
  2. Run a net price calculator on how much college will cost you
  3. Buy the Book The Thinking Student’s Guide to College by Andrew Roberts

 

Lynn’s advice for teens: What matters most is what you do when you’re in college!
