I have written here before about being the parent of two college graduates. I write this post today for the benefit of you parents (and high school juniors) who will be dealing with the college process this fall.
One of the main memories I have as a college Dad is what it took every year to handle the seeming deluge of financial aid paperwork necessary to anticipate each college year. I recall telling parents that for me it was like doing long-form income taxes every year almost three times. Why was that?
