CASE STUDY - "my student has no idea what he wants to do."

The Bradley Family

The Bradley's came to us in 2014 needing a lot of help. Their son, Ray, had not given college much thought but was poised to graduate in about a year. Through our comprehensive career search, we got Ray on track with a series of majors and college selections. We also had Ray focus on improving his GPA and our test prep program got him the test score we needed. We then competitively positioned him among several colleges. The results speak for themselves with the majority of his offers coming at below their expected family contribution (EFC). With new-found confidence, Ray is now completely engaged with the college planning process.
