The Full College Plan includes -

  • Finding the "Right Fit" colleges - Initially, I start with 10 colleges/universities.  Each school has a common summary page and additional sections that focus on possible majors, scholarships offered by the school, a summary of one of the possible majors and a notes section that includes areas of interest for the student.
  • Finding the "Right Price" colleges - Each of the schools above are run through a financial analysis to make sure they fit into the family's budget.  Included are ways for the student to earn money that could further reduce the cost of attendance.
  • Assistance with applications for the colleges and financial aid forms is available.  Once acceptances and aid packages arrival, a review of options is available.
  • The final section of the plan assists with the student's understanding of career options for possible majors.

The Financial Aid Plan includes -

  • Determination of a family's Expected Family Contribution and ways to reduce it IF it helps increase need based aid. Estimated net prices for the colleges on the student's list based on the family's finances.
  • Assistance with applications for the colleges and financial aid forms is available.  Once acceptances and aid packages arrival, a review of options is available.
  • The final section of the plan assists with the student's understanding of career options for possible majors.

The College Debt Plan includes -

  • Reviewing the graduate’s current debt situation and finding ways to reduce the monthly cost and/or the overall debt amount.  

The Full Pre-Med Plan includes -

  • The same process as the Full College Plan except for Med School. While the student is earning their undergraduate degree, assist in researching medical schools and the resources to pay for the next years of education.

I have worked with families that have experienced death, divorce, separation, remarriage in addition to families unaffected by these events. I have worked with students that range from Ivy League aspirations to Associates degrees at a local community college. I have worked with athletes, actors, engineers, journalists, students with learning differences and adults going back to college.  

Every student has their own unique path to success and I help find it.

finding the right price colleges
