Learn what other parents of college-bound students are saying about CPN
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 think we have structured my finances so that we can benefit greatly! I am dumbfounded and very pleased!
Thanks for all your help to get us positioned for this good news! Rebekah and I went to look at a couple schools during spring break last week so the process begins again! I may want you to run some EFC numbers on different schools sometime next year when we have a better defined list for her.
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.

Good friends recommended The College Planning Network to my wife and me. They conveyed a sense of relief at having experienced professionals handle the college funding process from start to finish. It can be overwhelming. My wife and I, too, have been very happy with the decision to utilize their services. We found ourselves comfortable discussing our financials and very pleased with their counseling and recommendations. We all have our expertise. It was nice to know that when the time came to need someone else’s expertise, The College Planning Network was there to assist. Simply put, they took the worry out of the process and saved us time and money we wouldn’t have otherwise known to be possible.
