Learn what other parents of college-bound students are saying about CPN
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 firmly convinced that we were about to enter some very deep water. What we truly appreciated in taking the first step with CPN was its promise to tell us honestly whether the use of its services would be beneficial to us. Are we every glad it decided that it would be.
Our encounter with Rob, who helped us to determine whether CPN was right for us was a very rewarding experience. With the colleges my daughter is considering, Rob showed how, depending on our demonstrable family need, it could cost less to send our daughter to Tufts (MA) than Marquette (WI). Eye opening. Rob helped us realize that our task would be to best position ourselves to have as low a family contribution as possible and that with CPN’s help we would likely be able to achieve that objective.
Enter Gordy. He took our information and almost instantaneously developed a plan that could end up saving us as much as $7,000 per year, if not more. His plan, at least to us, was sheer genius. It reduces our family contribution, provides a vehicle for funding our daughter’s education, increases the potential for merit based aid and protects our asset. Holy Cow!
You have very capable individuals in Rob and Gordy and we are blessed to have the privilege of benefiting from their talents. Please know that we are very pleased with our CPN experience (and our daughter isn’t even in college yet) and can’t imagine how things could be any better. We are so pleased, in fact, that we are recommending your firm’s services to other families that we know – who will have the advantage of getting your help, if they are smart enough to so elect, before their son or daughter is a senior.
Three short months and success beyond our wildest expectations! Thank you very much.
Very truly yours,
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 counseled us through the FASFA process, helping us receive the lowest EFC for the past three years. We feel more confident starting the process again with our Junior and know we can get factual answers to new questions.

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 service that we have received. Hiring CPN was one of the best moves we could have ever made in regards to going through the college process! You guys are the best 🙂
With two students in high school, the thought of having them enter college back to back was keeping me up at night. After attending a free Tele-Workshop and talking with The College Planning Network, I was able to relax, listen to their advice, and face the next several years with the knowledge that I have made some preliminary choices regarding our financial situation to at least maximize our chances at lowering our EFC. Also, having professionals work with my son, energize him, and help navigate him towards the college admission process has been very valuable. Parents get tired of being the heavy and appear to be “lecturing”. Having an outsider take an interest has instilled a sense of excitement, if not urgency.
I would recommend this service to any non-independently wealthy parents of future college students.
