For high school seniors, these can be anxious times. Not only are those headed to college trying to determine which school may be best for them, they are also waiting on financial aid offers. Major delays in the new FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Air) have left students and families without the financial information they need in order to decide between colleges. Experts will answer questions about changes in the path to post-secondary education—and how to pay for it.

Jonathan was born in Monsey, New York. A field trip to Washington, DC when he was in 7th grade started him on his circuitous path to a career in public radio. The trip inspired a love of politics and led to his desire to one day call DC home. After graduating from Grinnell College, he worked on a couple of campaigns in Iowa (presidential and congressional) and moved to Washington, DC.
