Planning for the future is challenging for anyone - especially for young people. They are already experiencing so much uncertainty in their lives, and then we ask them to choose from over 3000 colleges and universities and from thousands of careers. On top of that, add all of the media coverage on the rising cost of higher education and increasing difficulty getting into college, and it's completely understandable that thinking about life after high school results in student anxiety, family friction, and, sometimes, in giving up. Help is out there.
Using a Private College Counselor
Now, more than ever, it is important to make wise decisions about how and where you will spend anywhere from $60,000 to $200,000 on your son or daughter's college education. Smart college choices can save you money. A systematic, informed college search will ensure your student makes the best possible choice, resulting in a greater likelihood of satisfaction with his or her college experience. A happier student will perform better academically and will be less likely to drop out of school, preserving your investment. Having the "right fit" with the college may prevent the need to transfer to another school, saving you money. Having a knowledgeable professional guiding you through the entire process can eliminate unnecessary multiple test preparation services, college applications and college visits, which will lower pre-college costs, as well.
Many families navigate the college process without the help of an outside counselor or consultant. Sometimes, a student is so proactive that they will have researched, organized and planned their college search, know their intended major, and have the skills to choose colleges that truly fit them. For some families, however, the high school years can be a stressful and frustrating time.
If the prospect of helping your student make the right choice for his or her future is daunting, then an investment in one of our many college planning services may be right for you. If you answer "yes" to any of the questions below, then contact Rock Your Future for some help and a little peace of mind.
