We work with families to determine the "expected family contribution" for their school. We then use a handful of the 3,500 strategies available to reduce the amount of college costs, often saving families thousands of dollars annually. We then work with the students to help them get a grasp of what they would like to do, and have tools to help them if they are unsure, and then work with them to determine the colleges that best fit their criteria. We then help them with the visitation process and application process. Once they've been accepted, we work with them to determine the best award packages, and appeal them if necessary.
