These days, most people assume you need to pay a boatload of money for a quality college education. As a result, students and their parents are willing to go into years of debt and potentially sabotage their financial futures just to get a fancy name on a diploma. But Zac Bissonnette is walking proof that the assumption is not only false, but dangerous. From his unique double perspective he's a personal finance expert (at AOL Money and Finance) AND a current senior at the University of Massachusetts Zac figured out how too get an outstanding education at a public college, without bankrupting his parents or taking on loans.

Armed with his personal knowledge, the latest data, and smart analysis, Zac takes on the sacred cows and conventional wisdom about choosing and financing college. You'll discover, for instance, that:

  • Student loans are NOT a necessary evil. Ordinary middle-class families can and must find ways to avoid them, even without scholarships.
  • College rankings are useless designed to sell magazines and generate hype, if you trust one of the major guides when picking a college, you face a potential financial disaster.
  • The elite graduate programs accept lots of people with nonelite bachelor's degrees. So do America's most selective employers.

Zac can prove every one of hose bold assertions and more. He has a simple message for parents: 'RELAX! Your kid will be able to get a champagne education on a beer budget!

    " While I don't agree with everything in this book, particularly the chapter on why large research universities are preferable to small liberal arts colleges, the book provides a different way to look at the college selection process. The author makes sound arguments for why reach schools are overrated and that parents and students should seek to reduce costs. "
