What Families Are Saying
Jodi, Thanks for your prompt responses to all of my questions. I have been very pleased with the level of service I have received from CPN since enrolling last week. Have a great week! Barb
“Because we are new to this “college jungle”, the stress level has been greatly reduced to know we can always call with any questions and they will get back with us in a timely manner.”
We have been very pleased with our initial experiences using CPN. Their staff has always been available to talk with us, remind us of deadlines, and return multiple phone calls when questions came up. Because we are new to this “college jungle”, the stress level has been greatly reduced to know we can always call … Read more
Thank YOU Alicia. Your impeccable service is a God-send! We received an updated Financial Aid award and she has retained all her original aid, yay!
Dear Mr. Blumenthal: My wife and I had serious concerns about the formidable task of getting our daughter through the college application process and financing her education. Several months back now, her high school sent home a notice about how to register for one of Mr. Weingold’s webinars. We watched and listened and became more … Read more
When we listened to The College Planning Network’s Tele-Workshop, we knew it was different than other seminars we had attended before that simply told us how to fill out the dreaded FAFSA and when to do it. The presenter was knowledgeable and gave many “free” tips and techniques in the Tele-Workshop. After an hour of … Read more
Dear Cathy and Joanna, Laura got accepted to Ohio Northern (which was one of her top choices). No news from the other colleges yet but I know it is still early. We could not have gotten where we are without you. Thank you so much. Yolanda H.
“The biggest benefit is that they counseled us through the FASFA process, helping us receive the lowest EFC for the past three years.”
Our experience with The College Planning Network has helped our family at multiple levels of the college planning process. CPN has helped us make the best college choice for our daughter. Our assets have been retained for our retirement. More grant and scholarship monies were received from her college. The biggest benefit is that they … Read more
Kristen: I am very impressed with the service that CPN has provided my clients and I wanted to personally thank you as well for the Great Follow up!! Thank you very much!! I appreciate the hard work and quick responses you have performed for me. Harold W.
Hi Scott! I just wanted to let you know that we just got the first award letter back for the 2007 and 2008 school year for Breanne and Allison. They have received so much in aid that it looks like we will not have to pay anything or take out any loans this year! I … Read more
“We would highly recommend the CPN group for anyone who wants to target the best options for their child’s college experience.”
We have had a very positive experience with CPN, particularly by comparison with our previous attempt to select/fund college by ourselves. Our son selected his college and obtained his aid through his parents’ advice. The school turned out to be an inappropriate choice and a very expensive mistake. Our daughter, two years younger, has benefited … Read more
Hello Rosemary, Thank you for the encouraging words regarding Taylor’s applications and essay!! We will be submitting both applications this week so they are turned in by the deadline. We are just waiting on her counselor to send her transcripts. I just want to Thank everyone at CPN for the assistance, encouragement and outstanding professional … Read more
“The approach CPN utilizes is a personal and a very thorough review, taking into consideration all of the aspects of the search process…”
As a family with 2 children, the cost of high school has been a significant burden upon the financial picture and being able to ‘make-ends-meet’. When our older daughter was ready for college, we were advised to consider the services of The College Planning Network, and I am so glad that we took the time … Read more
“They also enabled our daughter to go to Case Western, which was a school we were not even considering due to the high tuition…”
We are a middle class/double income family and we did have some money saved for our three daughters’ college. Like many of you, we anticipated there wasn’t much we could do but pay the bills and take out loans when our savings ran out. But after listening to the advice from the college specialists at … Read more
Hi Pam, Thanks, we just found out, over the weekend, that Mackenzie was also accepted to the University of San Diego. She is “totally” excited. Thanks again for all you’re doing and to your organization. We give you guys a lot of credit and tell all that will listen about you guys
“The College Planning Network took the pain out of the confusing financial aid forms, along with helping take the stress out of the college search.”
I think my wife and I are like most parents who have kids in High School. All you hear is about the high cost of college. As parents, we worried about how we could afford to send our son to college without taking everything we had in savings and if that would even be enough. … Read more
