Learn what other parents of college-bound students are saying about CPN
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.
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!
I cannot thank you enough for the help and support you have offered me in the past few weeks. I especially appreciate the way you provided true compassion when I was at my rope’s end. You went beyond anything I would expect from a business organization, Thank you so very much.
Now for my question. I assume you submitted the FAFSFA for Gabrielle. When is the deadline for submitting the information for 2011. We may not have that information for a couple of weeks. We are waiting for one document before we hand our tax information to our CPA. He told us once he receives it, it will take him about a week to file. Will this be too late?
Again, Thank you so much!
I thought I understood the college funding process based upon my experience with my first child in college. When my second child was ready for college I decided there was no harm in seeking some additional professional support and contacted The College Planning Network. I thought maybe they could provide some suggestions for dealing with two college students. In reviewing my situation with the CPN professionals, we were able to make adjustments in my financial situation to improve – which meant reduce – the magical Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number for both children. We got subsidized versus unsubsidized loans which will save a lot of interest over the long-term. Additionally, we were also able to improve my overall family financial situation by paying off debt and readjusting our strategies for retirement. Thank you.
