What We do for You

We solve the backwards college application process for you.

Students typically first apply to college and then have to figure out how to pay for it after they have been accepted. They don’t know how much the school will ultimately cost them net of financial aid until after they have already applied. That's the wrong way to do this. We reverse the process. We show you what each school will cost before you apply to that school so you need only apply to those schools that you can afford to attend. This way, once you get accepted to a school, you already know you will be able to afford it.
