Review...Teachable Moments: Big Scholarships

Lee Binz has amazing insight into the world of Big Scholarships! She has waded through this maze already with her two boys and has gotten to the other side with two full scholarships for her boys top college pick. This DVD was the most concise work on the subject of getting scholarships that I've ever watched. I loved all the inside pointers on studing for the SAT, keeping accurate records, making your own transcripts, financial aid, essay writing, and how to find just the right colleges to apply to. Presenting three different and unique views of your child on the essays was just the kind of interesting and indepth information that I have been looking for! I think that EVERYONE, no matter whether you think your child will go to college or not, should buy this DVD. Top notch information and a view on the other side. You can't get this anywhere else.

The website for The HomeScholar is: and the cost for this amazing resource is a very reasonable $20. Get yourself one today!

I'll be reviewing the last DVD sometime this week and it's called Teachable Moments: Finding A College. I can't wait to watch it!

Thanks for reviewing this, Lisa. You should include a link to Lee's website so people could find out more information about her. Also, how much are the cd's?

I'm so glad you all had a nice Christmas. Life certainly is busy, isn't it.

Thanks Kathy! I've been fighting a cold and didn't catch those mistakes. I appreciate your help!

Lee had the advantage of having both of her boys so close in age that they did all their high school work together. Now what I want to know is how to do all this and not neglect the other children spread in age from 12 to 1!

You and me both! I've been praying about this exact thing all week. I've felt quite torn between my older kids and my younger ones lately. They all seem to need me.LOL What's up with that?lol
