We are too rich for aid but too poor to actually pay for college. What can you do? Everyone we are talking to tells us not to expect any money from these colleges.

The Ashton Family

We met the Ashton Family on the tail-end of 2016 when Mark, there son, was just a Sophomore. They saw that they had a problem and they could see it a mile away. Despite the advice of every planner they had previously talked to, they enlisted our help. We took time to evaluate Mark's career choices. We also gave him test prep that elevated his SAT score. We then helped Mark finalize his college selections where he was elevated and a great academic fit. Our merit aid research also positioned Mark to receive aid at every single college he applied to. This is a classic example of how effective our process is when families tune-out the noise and just listen.
