Attending college as an adult and my role as the mother of a high school student, with dreams of attending college herself, have left me with a unique perspective of college planning. Students need more time devoted to the college selection process and guidance in making career choices. There is also a lack of comprehensive information available families who want to take an active role in guiding their children as they begin their college trajectory. The identification of these needs became the impetus for College GPS.
There is a better way to prepare for college:
College GPS educates families on the financial aid and college admission processes, enabling them to make informed choices. I aid students in finding their best fit college and work with their families to save money on the cost of college. A simplified, structured approach minimizes stress by addressing the top concerns families have regarding college:
- What should we be doing to help our student prepare for college?
- Will we qualify for financial aid?
- Will our student be accepted at the schools they have chosen?
- How long will it take to graduate?
- Can we afford college without depleting our life savings?
- How can we cover the shortfall?
