Cracking the College Code : Unconventional Hacks and Strategies to Help You Beat the College System (Without Getting Buried in Debt)
The book college graduates "wish" they had when they were freshmen! Ok, you know you need a degree to get where you want to be in life. But these days, it's tougher than ever to succeed in college. Getting into a good school is hard enough, but that's only the beginning - you still have to fight to get into classes, compete for a spot in programs and majors, and figure out a whole new world of college policies and procedures...all that before you even crack open your first textbook! Then you have to figure out how to "pay" for all of it. And with skyrocketing tuition and fees, most can only do it with huge student loans; the average graduate these days is buried in debt before they even start their first job. It's enough to make you wonder - is all this even worth it? The fact is that, for way too many uninformed and underprepared students, it may not be. But with this book, "you won't be one of them." In this book, you'll learn unconventional strategies to beat the college system, both in and out of the classroom, such as: How to cram for tests How to win over your TAs and professors How to appeal and negotiate your grades What college "really" costs...and how to cut that amount in half The truth about so-called "financial aid" Little-known programs and loopholes to look for And much more! College is a more expensive, more competitive place than ever, and you're going to need a lot more than good grades to make it. What you need is a survival guide of unconventional hacks and strategies to give you a real competitive edge...and this is it!
