We have been through the college admissions maze five times with our five kids. It was overwhelming, it was exhausting and we wasted so much time seeking reliable information that we could trust.
Each of our kids was so different that what we learned for the oldest was out of date by the time the youngest applied.
We wanted to find a way to help other parents. We wanted to find experts who could answer questions every day so that they could have answers in real time. We wanted to make sure the experts had the credentials, the ethics and the knowledge about lots of colleges, all over the country.
We wanted to make sure we had the best information for parents on how to pay for college.
Thank you to all the experts on this page for your help & guidance through the college application process. My DD just received her first acceptance letter…. it’s from her top choice school & she was awarded their highest scholarship! Having access to the group’s experts was certainly a great help and huge stress reliever as we navigated the admissions process.”❤
Some families have joined the group for a month, six months, nine months…they have stayed as long as they needed to get their questions answered. Read here what The New York Times is saying about Grown and Flown.
G&F Parents: College Admissions and Affordability offers all those things and we could not be more thrilled with the accolades from parents who have been in the group:
Here’s What Our Members are Saying About G&F Parents: College Admissions and Affordability
As my son begins his junior year, I see how the stress and uncertainty that the college application process brings is already affecting him. There are so many little decisions, so many nuances, so many times he second guesses himself and wonders if he is making a “mistake” that will keep him from getting in where he wants to later. The ability to ask his nagging questions and get answers from experts who make this subject their life’s work is so valuable. I trust their knowledge – each of these counselors and consultants are at the tops of their fields, whether test prep or essays or any other aspect of college admissions. More importantly, I am able to give my son peace of mind that he is on the right track in terms of college so that he can focus on what’s really important right now: enjoying his high school experience.
I joined the new G & F Parents: College Admissions and Affordability group last week, and definitely think it’s worth trying (you can subscribe for just a month – cancel anytime). My son is a rising senior, so it’s crunch time for us coming up. I really like the units on different topics, and the fact that there are 10 experts in different areas available (at various times). Thank you Lisa and Mary Dell for creating this far more affordable service (private college counseling costs thousands)!
My membership is going to expire soon, so I just wanted to say thanks so much to all of the experts, and to Lisa and Mary Dell. Your depth of knowledge is impressive, and the time you invested in giving detailed answers was appreciated. I will likely rejoin when we need to go through this process again with my high school sophomore. Thanks again!
