“Peter Ratzan helped me so much through the whole process…the applications, figuring out where to apply and then the appeal process during the financial aid figuring out exactly how much money I would get to go to each school.”

How to avoid the mistake that made 165,000 miss out on millions of financial aid last year

First, there’s finding the school that’s the best match for your child (and your budget) and applying to it.

Every year there are roughly 2 million students applying for admission at one of America’s 3,900 institutes of higher education. The process begins earlier, is year-round, more competitive and more confusing.

In addition, there’s getting financial aid to help pay for college. Most families are surprised to learn that when it comes to college pricing, there is what college costs (this is the “gross” cost or “sticker price”) and then there is what college should cost you (the net price or the discount rate).

Did you know that 2/3 of students that apply to college receive some sort of discount (including families that earn well over 6 figures)?

When you work with us, we’ll ensure that your child is personally guided to gain acceptance to the “best fit” colleges that will suite his/her career aspirations. And we’ll ALSO help make college more affordable for YOU by integrating your funding objectives so that everyone wins.

“I had to write you and let you know that Matthew graduates from FAU on December 15th…woohoo! We’re so excited and we’re so proud and we definitely feel that the money we spent on your College Planning Package was very well spent. Matthew is a different kid today. Most recently and most excitingly he was the DJ for the opening of the National Geographic art gallery on Las Olas. Who knows what next year holds. We’re just so happy to see him completing college. I know we couldn’t have done it without your help!”
