Self Assessments Availalable

Self assessments are insightful to help you identify those areas where you need more information or support.

Tip: Print an extra copy for your spouse to complete. Compare results and see where you need to move forward together.


  1. Select the Self Assessment tool below closest to your goal
  2. Print the .pdf document out for each spouse
  3. Complete and total your score
  4. Compare and discuss areas of common strengths and areas where you are likely in need of more information or support.

One of the worst feelings in the world for me is to expend a lot of time and energy on something important and realize I am lost and right back where I started.

With a proper self assessment and guidance toward your goal you will be rewarded with a great feeling of heading in the right direction!

Remember that in our "instant" society you are taking an honest look at situations and circumstances that have likely developed over a long period of time.

Accordingly, desired changes rarely occur over night. One of the keys to long term success towards cherished life goals is to apply constructive energy together consistently over a long period of time.

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."
