There’s a particular episode when Haddie, the 17 year old daughter of Adam and Kristina, shares great news with her parents.
The great news is that she just received a letter of early acceptance to attend Cornell University (one of the most elite universities in the United States & the world).
Overjoyed by her accomplishment and the boundless opportunities in store, Haddie couldn’t wait to share her excitement with her mom and dad.
And of course, mom and dad were excited, proud and relieved that their child had what it took to could get accepted to such a prestigious university.
Shortly after the hugs and celebration, Adam shows a brief look of concern.
You notice a small chink in Adam’s parental armor that reveals a slight degree of hesitation and apprehension.
Through all the excitement and joy of this great news, little Haddie didn’t notice the camouflaged anxiety her parents were hiding.
It wasn’t until a few scenes later when Adam and Kristina are in bed feeling paralyzed by the news that their daughter had indeed been accepted to a high-end Ivy League university.
Their late night conversation was riddled with praise for their daughter, coupled with fear that they didn’t have the money saved to actually send her to Cornell.
With a cost of attendance at over $60,000 per year, it’s no wonder why mom and dad were quietly freaking out.
“What should we do?” mom asks.
Dad says, “Maybe she should think about going to a local junior college or community college, because money is so tight.”
And of course, the mom comes to the rescue and says,
We’ve been telling her to do her homework, volunteer for community service, run for student council office, and things like that her whole life so she could get into a good college.
There is no way she’s going to go to a community college.”
The dad is in shock. He just lost his job a few months back, and borrowed money to start his own business.
This new business startup was still nothing more than a hope and dream of prosperity.
And so the dad says to mom,
“Don’t worry about it now honey. Let’s just get some sleep and we’ll figure it out, like we always do.”
It was a great scene that showed the anguish of parents wanting what’s best for their children, but in reality, having no plan to be able to come up with $67,613 per year to help their child pay for the education.
What would you do?
Would you break your child’s heart and ambition by refusing to pay for the cost of attending Cornell University @ $270,452 for a 4-year degree?
Or would you “figure it out” and find a way to come up with the money?
What does “figure it out” mean?
How would you “figure out” how to come up with $270,452?
Many parents think they should be so lucky for their child to get accepted to such a prestigious university, while other parents simply tell their kids not to apply to such a school.
What would you do if your child got accepted to Cornell?
Would you say, “NO WAY,” or would you quietly “figure it out” by mortgaging your home, borrowing from relatives, or taking out high interest PARENT & STUDENT loans to cover the cost?
The truth is, there is a way to get the money to attend Cornell University and practically any other top college in America.
But it takes knowledge and skills.
That’s why I encourage you to attend a very special webinar I’ll be hosting with Trevor Ramos, Author of How To Get Free Money For College and President of College Funding Remedies.
Trevor’s going to reveal how to send your kids to the best, most expensive colleges in America for just pennies on the dollar!
This online workshop will take place on Saturday, August 6th at 10.30 am.

I’m extremely careful about endorsing third party programs. In fact, I rarely do. But if money for college is a concern of yours, I am certain the time you spend with Trevor will pay dividends.
I’ll be on the webinar personally and I look forward to seeing you there.
