  1. Be a wise consumer. Know that the largest source of free college money is at the schools themselves.
  2. Pharmacy is a competitive entrance major at many schools. This means that just because you received an offer of admission from the college, you may still have to prove yourself to get into the pharmacy program. Due to the rigors of the program students often change majors. Accordingly, be sure you choose your college wisely and have a back-up major at the same school. This avoids costly transfers.
  3. Identify objective college selection criteria beyond pharmacy. This will help you identify a much wider circle of schools to choose from.
  4. Don't waste time chasing private scholarships that don't offer at least $1,000 in awards and more specific evaluation criteria. You need to have a reasonable confidene you will get a return on your time invested in applying.

What Clients Are Saying



“…without your involvement, we never would have thought to approach the college directly…. We got the documentation together to obtain residency, created letters to send and were granted residency which translated to $20,000 in savings.

THEN we went back and said, 'don’t take away her out-of-state scholarship just because she is now a resident' and got OSU to maintain the $7,000 scholarship".

"We would like to express our appreciation for the service that our daughter received.

She is our first child to go through the college application process, and it was very intimidating for our whole family. You were able to create a clear, understandable path for our daughter.

As a result of all of this hard work, our daughter was offered three presidential scholarships at various colleges, including a full tuition scholarship to a private college.

Thanks again, and we look forward to working with you on our son's upcoming college search."

"HWS presented an above average financial aid award, however, it included some work study. With your guidance, I went back and asked that the work study be converted to either grant or scholarship to relieve the financial burden while allowing my daughter to focus on academics.

They came back with the conversion AND continued to keep her eligible for an equal amount of money through work study."
