Everybody want the most free money possible for college, right? Of course you do. And the advice everyone receives from counselors, colleges, and even some of the college planners who host college planning workshops at your local high school is always the same. They say the key to accessing this big pile of free money is found in filing for financial aid. While sometimes that can be helpful, there are actually times when filing for financial aid can hurt your chances for bigger awards at the colleges of your dreams.

In this episode, Jason shows you how to bypass the Financial Aid office altogether and maximize your results with a little known strategy he's used successfully for years at some of the best colleges in the country.
