My school said they can help me with all of this for free. Why should we pay for your service?

It is true that school guidance counselors and college advisors can also be helpful in the college planning process, but consider this: your school counselor probably has a caseload of 100 to 300 to 600 students. Will he/she have enough time to give you the personalized attention you need when making such a big life decision? Furthermore, does your school counselor have the training and ability to advise on your financial situations and ways to strategically afford the cost of college? It’s not enough to know what forms need to be completed and their deadlines; you need to have a detailed plan to strategically get financial aid. We recommend hiring a college planner if you are serious, if you see the value in individualized attention, and if you want to pay for college wholesale rather than retail. If you’re not serious about those things, then we’re probably not right for you.
