From Our Founder

College is Too Big a Commitment to Make a Mistake!

Everyone knows that College tuition is expensive. But the true price can be much higher than the Cost of Admission. As an example, starting a successful career is a primary reason many student attend College; yet less than 40% of graduating students find a job in their major area of study.

And while College attendence rates are high, graduating on time is not. Less than 50% of today’s College students graduate in 4 years or less. The result is a frustrating educational experience and a huge financial expense to pay for extra years.

The key is to make smart decisions before you are committed. We help you do just that.
