Financial Plan section
For the first part of this project each student researched their ideal college and profession and proceeded to make a financial plan based around that. We calculated what our financial aid would be, the living costs for the first year after college, student debt, and how we would invest our money moving forward in life. Here is the overview and final collection of my plan.

C. Savings and Investment Plan
SHORT TERM (“Spending Bucket”)
Short Term Goals: (What do you want to save for in the next 6 months to 2 years and why?)
Short Term Investments:
This money will be sent to the my cars company to pay off the rest of the initial payment.
MID-TERM (“Savings Bucket”)
Mid-Term Goals: (What do you want to save for in the next 3-20 years and why? This might include a down payment for a home, weddings, or college savings for your future children.)
My mid-term goal is buying a house because of it’s ability to provide income by renting it out, providing a home for my future family and giving me a location to be able to preside.
Estimated Monthly Mid-Term Investment Amount: 5,500
Mid Term Investments: (Where will you put this money and why?)
This money would begin to be invested monthly as payment multiple years after I am out of school and have found a steady job. I would put a lot of the money leading up to it in a savings account and begin to give payments to the mortgage.

Interest Rate (r): 0
Number of Months Saving (n): 156
Monthly Contributions (C): $5,500

Desired Age of Retirement: 80
Number of Years Working: 60
Estimated Monthly Long Term Investment Amount: $603.0564476
Long Term Investments: (Where will you put this money and why?)
This money would go into my 401K account so I have a set amount of money at my disposal at the time of retirement.

Interest Rate (r): 0.005
Number of Months Saving (n): 600

For the second part of this component we created an infographic showcasing information from our position papers. Mine shows some of the statistical data surrounding Hispanic students SAT scores and College acceptance.
