“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 to investigate what CPN has to offer.

We started using CPN three years ago and continue to utilize their services as our older daughter now will enter her junior year in college and our younger daughter enters her senior year of high school. From the beginning of the college search, through the college selection, the procedures required to apply for admission, all the required college forms, and the methods of applying for scholarships, grants, and loans, CPN has been a major advisor upon all of our decisions.

The approach CPN utilizes is a personal and a very thorough review, taking into consideration all of the aspects of the search process, including the desires of the pre-college student, the long term cost of the education, the impact of the financial cost upon the family, and most importantly – an emphasis upon how these goals can be accomplished while maintaining the financial viability of the family.

The funding of college education is an overwhelming task. CPN assists by providing a complete review of the process. With the services of CPN, we will meet the goals of having both of our children attend quality schools and the financial burden will be minimized and viable for all concerned.

“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.

“They have been very good at listening and understanding our individual family issues.”

I like CPN because I have enough on my plate already. They have been able to give us options that we were unaware existed. I like “think” time and I do not feel pressure to make decisions. They have been very good at listening and understanding our individual family issues. We now have a game plan to send our three girls to college. Thank you!
