Why do you need help with your child's college planning?

Choosing a college is probably the single most important and expensive decision you will make with your children. Every family wants their child to be happy in college, as the experience that essentially transitions them to adulthood.  At the same time, you need to make the best use of your college dollars, as the average family will spend over $500 - $1,000 per week, for at least 4 years, to send a child to college.  

The good news is that there now exists an unprecedented wealth of information available in the form of websites, guidebooks and well-meaning friends. Unfortunately, that is also the bad news, as there are over 3,000 colleges and universities out there for your student to consider.  Enlisting professional assistance to help create options for your child's best college match and to facilitate the application process can make a positive difference in your child's college search and application.

On a scale of 1-10, our experience with Kathryn was about a 14! She took the time to get to know our son, his interests, and his goals. She was able to help him recognize what was really important to him in a college and then was meticulous in her vetting effort to present us with a list of recommendations. Her insight to each school was amazing and she was able to clearly articulate the “why” behind each one she presented... She helped us understand the complexities of today’s college acceptance process as well as the realities that go along with it. She was positive, supportive, and candid. She’s wonderfully personable and connects well with young people...If you have a talented son or daughter and you want to help them find the college or university where they will thrive, you need to call Kathryn Miller. - Parent of a Legend H.S. graduate now headed to Macalester College
