Faced with the task of paying for college,
many parents seek help from college planning programs that turn out to be less
than helpful. Some programs will take your money in exchange for advice which
comes from E-mails, faxes, the Internet, or tedious over-the-phone
consultation. You could have obtained this information without their help.
Other college programs may focus on the financial, but they do not have a good
background in taxes and business. Their focus is to offer you investment
opportunities. Such programs are unsympathetic to plight of parents who still
must find a way to pay for college.
At your first meeting with CTP, which is
completely free, we will provide a preliminary assessment of your financial
assets and income as well as your financial aid eligibility. We will introduce
you to our program. At subsequent meetings, we will introduce you to strategies
tailored to your particular, personal needs, and explain how you and your
family will benefit from your services. The choice to continue beyond the first
meeting is, of course, entirely yours. However, we are sure you will want to
continue with College Tuition Planners, a path leading to financial security
and a happy commencement day for your child!
