​​Getting your kid into a great college --
​and paying that always-increasing college bill --
​is not as easy as it was 20-30 years ago.

​​The competition for good colleges is stiffer (500,000 more students apply to college today and universities receive up to ​97,000+ applications).

And the cost?  It's nearly tripled.  The average cost for the majority of 4-year colleges has crossed the $200,000 mark.

Too many families find themselves shocked by a rejection letter.  And they're even more shocked by the bill!  Especially when they thought they'd done such thorough research.

Don't be one of them!

​Attending his top-choice school and saving $102,900...

When we started the college search in our son’s junior year, we honestly thought he’d be at the local state university because it would be our cheapest option. Small problem, our son Michael did NOT like the local state universities. And we had to agree we did not feel they were good fits for him.  

But, we were panicking at the thought of paying $53,000  to $58,000 per year at the colleges he did like.  We knew we needed to tip the scales back in our favor -- but we both work and ​didn't have time to make heads or tails of the tons of information out there.  So we hired Jean and ​her team.  

The end result?  Michael was accepted ​at all of the colleges he applied to.  And his four top scholarship offers were worth over $551,200 over four years!  Michael is ​thriving at his dream college and we are happily saving over $102,​900 on the cost of his college education.
