About Us -My wife and I want to keep the “College Education” part of the American Dream alive for as many students and families as possible! We have two high school age children of our own that plan to attend college. As we have been preparing for these fast approaching years, we have learned that things are not what they were when we attended college.

For example:

  • Costs – college costs have skyrocketed at a faster pace than healthcare!
  • Confusion abounds – everything from what “aid” means to “due dates” to the time it takes to earn the desired degree has become complicated!
  • Control – colleges want families to believe that both acceptance and costs are formula driven and that they have little to no control over these matters.
  • Career Crisis – today degrees are taking longer to achieve, more careers require graduate degrees, and less than 19% of graduating students are finding meaningful employment – often NOT in their area of study!
  • Colleges are “Big Business” - like most businesses, financial goals are their primary concern with little regard for a family’s financial situation.

With these and many more factors waging war on families financial health, greater awareness and new strategies are needed to be successful in “Getting a degree without crippling debt.”

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."
