How to Get Money for College as a High School Student
Paying for college is dangerously expensive! The greatest risk of preparing for your dream job with a college education is the common mistake of borrowing Student Loans to pay for tuition. The fact is that colleges and universities are purposely raising the cost of education to make a profit and lenders are raising interest rates at record highs! Consider the trend over the last three years: The college graduate class of 2013 owed an average of $28,400 in student loan debt upon graduation, up 2% from the class of 2012. The average student loan debt for the class of 2013 exceeded $30,000. The interest rate on federally subsidized Stafford loans BEFORE July 1, 2013 was 3.86%. The interest rate on federally subsidized Stafford loans, AFTER July 1, 2013 is 6.8%. Although interest rates are causing more students to be in debt after graduation, YOU CAN AVOID THIS! If you are a High School student who doesn't want to pay back insurmountable student loans with interest, Keep Reading!"

About Jason Youngblood
When I was preparing to attend college as a High School student, I had no idea how to pay for it. I assumed that somehow if I applied for financial aid then my tuition would be taken care of. When I finally graduated, my tab was a whopping $36,000. Now at the time, my first job out of college was around $20,000 a year, which was consumed by living expenses. However, in spite of my insufficient income, lo and behold, I discovered a bill asking for $300 a month to start paying for the college education that was intended to make me more money after graduation. I simply could not afford it with all my other bills for rent, car, and food. I applied for financial hardship in order to defer repaying the loans. Two years later I volunteered for a Non-Profit called Mentoring Student Athletes that helped High School students pass the ACT and SAT tests. It was there that I learned from the director of MSA, Jeff Tarver, scoring well on the ACT or SAT, then earning a high accumulative GPA in High School would earn students money that they did not have to pay back. I kicked myself for not knowing this or not caring when I was in High School. In 2013 I took what I learned from MSA and started Be Your Dreams, LLC to help High School students do what I didn't do; excel at being a great student so that you literally attract colleges that want to pay you to attend their school. That is what I teach today, that High School is a job that you get paid tens of thousands of dollars to do well. You just have to wait Four Years to get the check; but it's well worth it. Hi, my name is Jason Youngblood and I am the Founder of Be Your Dreams, LLC. We compiled this book for High School students who would like our College Prep Consulting services but are too busy to participate in extra tutoring sessions. This is a clear and concise book on what you can do to make colleges pay you to attend their school.
