"They were there with us through it all!"

I heard My College Authority speak at a networking meeting and I am so glad I did! We knew sorting through the process of college planning was going to be difficult. There is so much involved; from making financial decisions to exploring schools that met our criteria, but they were there for us through it all. Our College Planner was able to connect with and explain things to our son in a way HE could understand.

"We found the perfect school!"

We went to a class at My College Authority and were very impressed...Our College Planner was helpful and professional, and we felt comfortable asking questions. My College Authority and staff provided us with the tools to narrow our search for schools and suggested options we never would have considered on our own...My daughter ended up finding the perfect school for her and for us! They also gave us extra assistance since my husband is self-employed and we had extra forms to fill out. We loved that!

"$61,404, wow!"

We received the scholarship value from Columbia ($61,404 for senior year, wow!).  She graduates May 20!!!  We will always remember how important your help was in making Columbia possible for Maren.

"No way, without your help!"

Thanks for everything you've done!!! I told Tim there is no way that he would have received 5 acceptances without My College Authority's help.

"The information is vast and the tasks daunting."

We often wondered if we would be able to find the time to research and what is best for our girls.  The information is vast and the tasks are daunting when it comes to finding the right college. Scholarship applications, testing, and providing financial information will eat up most of our time, not to mention the research on the colleges themselves. You have managed to create a program that makes it easy to do all that is necessary to find the right fit at the right price while saving us so much time. We can't thank you enough for providing this service and we look forward to working with you over the next couple of years!
