College is just around the corner—are you getting ready?

There are a lot of things to think about when you’re planning for college and a lot of steps to take—starting with getting the financial assistance you need to pay for school.  There are billions of dollars in college financial aid available to high school students across the country, and the first step to making sure you get your share is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
