Three things happen during your College Strategy Session:
Fire away any "burning" questions on our conference call!  (You'll get our conf call log in details after you book.) Most calls are about getting into college, paying for college (grants and scholarships) help managing the whole process, i.e. ACT/SAT, what do do when, esp. choosing colleges, extra-curriculars, interviews, applications essays, more!
You'll get answers to each of your questions.  However, be forewarned:  typically, Andy has several questions for YOU :)  Frequently, his questions are about grades, standardized test scores (if known), extra-curricular activities, financial info such as income, savings, your goals...and challenges!   
We will give you the best advice we're  capable of giving, even if it's not what you were hoping to hear (we'll
​​​​​​ be gentle, though). Andy turns down approximately 33% of the prospective clients he speaks with, usually because he determines that the firm's services can't add enough value to warrant the investment by the family.
As soon as I walked through your door I felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.  Thank you for all you have done for my precious girls!

Thank you for all your help with the applications and essays!
-Victorien Jakobsen, Vassar College

I recommend to all my friends with kids headed to college that they call you.

Initially, I thought I was just going to get financial aid advice but 
Andy helped us with a lot more than that.  

He spoke about camps Alexis should attend to showcase her talents, the sports resume to send out to colleges, sports DVD, the essays she should be writing, internships and just so many other little details that I just didn't think about. 

His rolodex is filled with the right connections that Lexi needed for the college process. He helped us market our daughter. 

I think it would be worth your time to meet with Andy. Thank you!

Andy put all my wife's anxieties about the college paperwork to rest.  I can't say enough about the quality of his work.  My daughter is so happy at Columbia!
Thanks, Andy!

Andy, We want to thank you and Pearl for all your hard work advising us on the issues surrounding college admission. You simplified an often complex process and took a huge load off of our shoulders. 

While we should have listened to your advice regarding early decision, we were pleased with the increase in financial aid afforded to us.  
We look forward to your counsel in the years ahead for all three of our college bound children. It’s great working with you both.

Dear College Pete and Andy: 
We wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for your professional guidance in the college planning process. We first met with you at one of your seminars when Lauren was in the beginning of 10th grade. While initially it seemed perhaps to be a bit premature to plan for college three years in advance, it became clear that in fact that was the perfect time to start planning. You never made any guarantees other than that if we followed your strategies we would put ourselves in the best possible position to be eligible for financial assistance.Lauren received a letter from Vanderbilt approximately one month ago. The good news for her was that she was accepted for admission...but Vanderbilt's initial award for financial aid was approximately $9,000.
It became clear that Vanderbilt misconstrued some information on our tax return, and you, You and my accountant and I worked closely together to further explain the tax situation. Ultimately, through perseverance and continued support from you, the initial award was increased from $9,000.00 to $39,000. We are thrilled as parents as is our daughter, Lauren. 
 We would highly recommend your professional service to any family who is considering sending their child to a private university.

I recommend that you contact Andy, everything was done for me, college applications, offers...he guided me through the entire process -it was great!  I didn't have to worry about anything!
