“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 The College Planning Network, we saw that we did have choices and things we could do to get our EFC down and also pick from some better schools. CPN gave us simple reorganizing techniques for our estate that brought our numbers down. They also enabled our daughter to go to Case Western, which was a school we were not even considering due to the high tuition. Our family also had the problem of ex-spouses incomes and their impact on our FASFA. CPN gave us good advice regarding money sources other than our own incomes and savings. They could answer questions that others couldn’t. Lastly, having their service fill out our forms and help with reply letters to colleges was a real time saver. We always had someone to ask if we didn’t quite understand what to put on the form! All services are done professionally and in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend listening to what they could do for you and your child. After a few conversations with them we were amazed at what we didn’t know.

“…Having professionals work with my son, energize him, and help navigate him towards the college admission process has been very valuable.”
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.

Sitting in on the free Tele-Workshop made me realize that the college search and the financial preparations were much more daunting than I realized. CPN was a tremendous help and they even appeared to have fun helping us! We created timelines for the college search, and The College Planning Network completed and submitted my FAFSA forms early. They really helped to simplify the process and calm our nerves. We were even able to reduce our monthly bills! Initially, the cost of sending three kids to college appeared overwhelming. I am now confident that we can do it!

“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 with any questions and they will get back with us in a timely manner. Thanks again!
