"The plight of college-bound teens and parents in today's tough economy is becoming a real flashpoint," explained InLikeMe Publisher Lynn Radlauer Lubell. "Our audience, while focused on great educational options, is increasingly budget conscious. We cover every step in the college-bound process, with a focus on finding the right schools, and the best deals. InLikeMe addresses a challenge that my family, along with many others, have encountered: making sense of the college admissions and scholarship processes."
The Ten Step College Planning Guide, targeted primarily to High School Juniors and their parents, is a primer designed to let them be more efficient and cost conscious in the college search & admission process and to position them for a more successful financial aid package.
The Guide covers financial aid, scholarships and other issues related to sticker price vs. college affordability and values in education. The Guide also details the key factors college admissions officers look for when evaluating applicants, offers tips on developing an admissions "hook" & college resume and provides links to free prep sites for the SAT and ACT. Students and parents focused on "finding the right schools" will be pleased to learn about a variety of no-fee sites featuring candid reviews (written by students), videos, virtual campus tours, photos, admissions information and more.
InLikeMe is a combination web destination and gateway for college-bound high school students and their parents seeking college planning information and advice along with direct access to hundreds of Internet resources to help define and realize college aspirations.
