To help families implement the various college planning strategies, to lower their costs of attending college, 

" I found that taking Standardized Tests was extremely challenging with a great degree of difficulty. David's company prepped and prepared me to take the SAT exam again and I was able to increase my score on the exam by almost 300 points".

"Not only was David and Bobby able to get us an incredible financial aid award that we never thought we'd ever get, but his patience in helping us navigate the entire college planning process has helped us immeasurably and now our son can realize his dream of going to Northwestern University."

" I was impressed with the level of expertise and professionalism that David, Bob and his staff exhibited when taking us through the college planning process. We found this to be an eye-opening experience and couldn't have achieved success if it weren't for their wonderful efforts"
