"I haven't talked to you for a while, but you're still my best friend in the homeschool business" ~ Kim
First of all, I want to say Thank You…for everything. From the time I bought the Total Transcript Solution in 2009 and got started on high school record-keeping, I have felt your support in our homeschool. Last fall, being a Gold Club Member gave me the encouragement, advice and support that I needed to complete that Comprehensive Record (with over 40 course descriptions!!), a top-notch transcript and all those application essays. I knew my daughter was amazing, but you helped me to present her in a way that schools will notice her and recognize the special candidate that she is. She has been accepted to her two top choices (with her top school offering her $19,000 per year in merit-based scholarship, not including special scholarships and financial aid). All of the big scholarship applications have been submitted and there are just a few smaller ones to do this month. I got my FAFSA done on January 2—early just like you say! So I feel like the big hurdles are past and now we just need to wait for responses about financial aid, scholarship and Ivy League acceptances. Thank you for all your input and encouragement in the process and I look forward to sharing with you the “end results.”
As missionaries on a limited budget, my Gold Care Club membership was a necessary “luxury” to get me through the toughest part of senior year. Thank you again for walking this journey with me. I will continue to receive your email, buy and read your books, and recommend your site to other families until our next daughter is ready to go through this process!

FAFSA stands for "Free Application for Federal Student Aid." It's a form you fill out, much like the 1040 tax forms. Like the tax forms, these are also super-fun and well-written government prose. The US Department of Education requires the FAFSA to receive any government money for college. They mean "free" because it doesn't cost money to apply for the
