Recently our Founder Chelsea Watkins was interviewed by College Prepped for a fascinating Q&A session about getting into college and not overpaying for it.

 

Here are some of the highlights:

 

What is the most optimum grade for students/families to start working with you?

 

“Many families don’t think they need to start thinking about this process until their child is a junior. It’s actually better if you start as a freshman or sophomore in high school – that way both the students and the parents can approach the process from a proactive position, as opposed to a reactive one.”

 

What are some of the most common mistakes students make when applying to college?

 

“Not knowing what the financial aid situation is at a school before applying – how much aid do they give, do they give merit scholarships, etc. Applying to colleges that are not a good match for them.”

 

Read the entire interview here and find out what Chelsea says is the most important thing for parents to do during the college planning process.
