If you and your high school aged child are just beginning the college search process, don't neglect the importance of finding school(s) that are the right financial fit. It can be easy to assume a school is too expensive after first glance at the sticker price, or that your family makes too much money, or that you're guaranteed to get merit aid from every school, or that every college will give you need-based financial aid.
