Listen up, college kids

Christine J. Kim, USA TODAY WEEKEND, Nov 12-14, 2010, says now’s the time to finish those college apps.

Doing it before they are due avoids the rush—winter is when financial apps are also due.

Apply to at least six schools, says financial adviser Scott Anderson.

It’s OK to be undecided on major. Most people are.

Hold off on making any financial decisions until you hear on money from all schools (March or April).

Be very wary of early admission—you don’t know what you are looking at moneywise.

Exciting times—but also high finance. Be cautious.
