College Readiness

We are here to give you solid advice about your options before you ever fill out a college application.

Choosing college comes with its own set of serious financial and life responsibilities and ramifications which must be understood before accepting them.  Is it better to work while still in school or not?  These questions are characteristic of the types of questions all students face-everyday. We are here to offer guidance and assistance with everyone’s unique situation.

Far too many students engage academically, without understanding the full implications of their decisions, on both a social and economic level when going back to college.  For example, something as simple as applying to college is not just about an application; rather, you are choosing an entirely new life paradigm.  If you take out student loans, in today’s marketplace, you can affect your credit score in serious ways.  Working while in school presents another set of unique challenges most students never consider before applying.

We live in an era of hyper-competition in every arena, especially education. With increased pressure on working adults and non-traditional students to achieve academically, economically and socially.   Being prepared for the demands of academic study is a critical life juncture, if not managed properly, can be counter productive and potentially economically devastating.  

Think about this example:  if you decide to go back to college, take out student loans and then drop out for one reason or another, you are still responsible to pay back all loans and sill have no upward mobility or degree to show for your efforts.  Meaning, you have added to your debt-burden and are still stuck in that dead-end job.  This is what we strive to avoid at all costs. 

Even when you decide to return to school, there are still lingering concerns about what school is a good choice and what are my options when it comes to paying for school. There are so many options out there it has become confusing to even know which school is a real school and which one is the best option for your given circumstances.

If you still have questions about making changes as they pertain to advancing your educational and career goals, we would recommend our private consultation services.

  • We will, upon booking, schedule a 50 Minute Private Phone Consultation.  
  • We will launch into a series of conversations about your background and personal situations with meticulous specificity.
  • We will attempt to uncover what blocked your success at previous attempts to attend college.
  • We will ask you to submit a current Resume/CV with all work experience.
  • We will ask you to submit your GI BIll / Soldier's Individual Transition Plan (ITP) information if applicable. (Voluntary, Not Mandatory)

  • We will produce a written summary and document our findings for you.

Because our services vary from individual to individual it is difficult to estimate exactly how much time will be required to give you the proper amount of advice relating to your career and educational goals.  In our experience, one conversation is usually not sufficient to discuss every single pertinent detail of your potential and upcoming academic endeavors; however, some individuals may find one conversation is enough for their needs. 

Topics discussed are highly focused and will inevitably lead to more, highly meaningful, in-depth conversations.  While not mandatory, we highly recommend scheduling, a minimum of three billable conversations, because nothing in Higher Education is as straight forward as it seems. 

We always provide written summaries of our conversations with specific recommendations.  Your Privacy is guaranteed. 

* Please be advised, any fees paid, are external of specific costs that clients may encounter as a matter of our recommendations; for example, fees such as those for additional testing/services.
