CASE STUDY - We THOuGHT WE COULD NOT AFFORD YOU. WE THEN REALIZED WE CAN't AFFORD NOT TO.

The Rodriguez Family

The Rodriguez Family are first-generation immigrants and run a business. When they became aware of the high cost of college, they enlisted our help. Luckily, we were lucky to work with their first student thus paving the way for their other two students. Cesar, their first child, followed our college selection process and came into this situation without any preconceived notions. Our plan not only set aside enough money for all three college educations, we also made sure enough was available to retire. Here is what we accomplished:

Cesar (2018 Grad) - 3.97 GPA / 1240 SAT Score

$61,574 - Adjusted Gross Income

$20,000 - Savings

Final EFC - $5856
