Podcasts for College Funding and YOU

For all things college – go to our website – building a better world.net.  Please go here for extra credit assignment in discussing this material with mom and dad.

This college funding thing is critical.  And knowledge is power.  With that in mind – it is vital that you thoroughly understand each of the terms listed below.  We will  take a Common Assessment that will revolve around each of those terms listed below.  However, more important is that you know exactly what this stuff is all about.  These podcasts will help you acheive these ends.

Also, since this whole college thing is dependent on a team effort between you and your parents, a great way to study for any upcoming test, would be for you and mom and dad to sit down together and listen to each of the following podcasts.  In fact, go here if you’d like an extra credit assignment that you and your folks can discuss together.  Talk about each one.  Make sure that everybody is on the same page.  Use this as a way to begin your college search…

Apple Computer – MacBook Pro Serial #C02K71BJDTY3

To Apple Computer Customer Service….

Please go here to access my Letter of Complaint for the above computer.  I have been a loyal Apple Customer since 1985. I have owned at least eleven computers in that time period.  I trust that you will take my concerns seriously.  The letter is linked on my School Website since there is no way to attach a PDF to the Apple complaint sight.  I’ve also linked a video that documents my disappointment with the machine and the Apple Care Service responsible for its repair.

I hope to hear back from you promptly.

Thank you.   and Sincerely.  Bob Wood
