Are these your concerns?


The cost of college continues to rise every year at a rate higher that is higher than inflation.

The college admissions process is complicated and varies greatly from school to school.  It is both time consuming and expensive.
Choosing the right college is complicated, not only does it need to be affordable, but your child also needs to be accepted.
Choosing a college is often an emotional topic, often leaving logic and rational choices and decisions off the table.
There are over 1400 colleges within the United States from which to choose.
College expenses are more than the cost of tuition and books; room and board, transportation, and extra-curricular activities all contribute to the overall costs.

Most often, the costs for college are paid with after-tax savings.  This hides the real costs.

Applying for financial aid is often complicated.
Many families will find that their earnings and/or their assets will disqualify them for many of the best financial aid programs.
