College Planning: Do you know where the money will come from?

Posted by Larry Jones on Apr 19, 2018 9:30:00 AM

You have just experienced a major paradigm shift:

As you stand in the maternity ward at 3:12 AM staring at little Bernie, you can't believe how your life has just changed. An hour ago life was all about you. Now, as Junior grasps your finger and holds on for dear life, you realize for the first time that your entire life from now on will revolve around this little fellow who's counting on you. You'd happily step in front of a bus for him if necessary.

The doctors come excitedly into the room to tell you that little Bernie holds the hospital record apgar score! He'll surely be a neurosurgeon or nuclear physicist.

But Harvard or Oxford won't be cheap....

How will you manage to pay for his education (even though you're sure the little genius will graduate in only 2 years)?

Making College Planning Easy

A Brain is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Should your child go to college?

My parents were part of the "greatest generation." Dad was a veteran of WWII (and not happy about it. He was on the verge of being called up from a minor league baseball team to play in the majors when Uncle Sam summoned him instead...) and came home in 1945 to a world finally at peace. In those days, a college education was considered a sure ticket to success. That's not so much the case today. It really depends on your field of study as to what your opportunities will be, and many college graduates come into the workforce only to discover that it's very difficult to find employment using their particular field of study. Many skilled trades pay as much or more as could be earned with a degree. I'm of the opinion that college isn't for everybody, and many are in college who shouldn't be.

Nevertheless, most parents have the hope that their little angel or angel-ette will one day discover the cure for cancer, bring about world peace, or colonize Mars, and to do that, they're going to need to attend college. 

And so the next question is: how are we going to pay for it?
