This book is great to help kids get a feel for the colleges which interest them. Two college visits last weekend left us with the impression that The Insiders Guide got it right. Book was counselor recommended and very much enjoyed by my daughter and her friends. Read full review

I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called Mr BARRY MORE who controls a firm called BARRY MORE Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($200,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 3%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of you who is interested in getting a loan without collateral, no credit check, no co signer with just 3% interest rate and better repayment plans/ schedule, to please contact Mr Barry More. You can contact him through his email: barrymoreloans12@hotmail.com
