Thanks to Eric Tyson for returning to the NGPF podcast to discuss his new book, Paying for College for Dummies. You might remember Eric from an earlier podcast episode where our focus was on personal finance and investing. He has taken on this new challenge of explaining how the college financial aid process works in ways that we can all understand. Now that is an admirable undertaking given its opacity! In this podcast, Eric shares common misconceptions that people have about financial aid, the prevalence of discounting in higher ed and how to think about negotiating for a better package in this age of Covid-19.
