Summary
What happens when college students are allowed to be completely honest about their learning environment? When they're empowered to speak their minds about their professors, peers, tuition bills, and prospects for landing jobs in their fields? Answer: a revealing portrait, drawn from inside the world of the 21st-century campus, that will benefit parents, high school students, guidance counselors, and young people who are just beginning the college experience. In this documentary, students talk about the ups and downs of higher education and the costs of obtaining it at community colleges, state universities, and private institutions. Topics include diversity, the proliferation of digital tools and distractions, the rise of prescription medication abuse, gaining or lacking a clear sense of purpose in college, and the likelihood - or lack thereof - of finding fulfilling work after graduating. In addition, professors and business leaders discuss what they'd like to see in today's college students and job candidates.

Summary
To help improve the odds of being accepted by America's most desirable colleges and universities, increasing numbers of high school students are getting a jump on the competition by applying for early admission. This ABC News program looks at the controversial process and contrasts it with Georgetown University's nonbinding early action alternative. The marketing efforts of Georgetown-and of some of its would-be freshmen-are discussed. The weighty influences of college rankings and test scores are also addressed, as are unfair advantages of socioeconomic class and a deep ambivalence about the perceived advantages of race.

Summary
To get to college, good grades and high hopes will take a person only so far. Sooner or later the subject of tuition will come up, and no amount of wishing will make it go away. Fortunately, a little creativity and a lot of determination can pay off - literally. This video will help viewers understand four key financial aid sources: scholarships, grants, work-study, and student loans. The program also offers tips on earning extra cash and includes the "High School Road Map to Financial Aid," an incredibly helpful schedule that spells out what to do and when to do it, starting with junior year.
