Selecting the right school that fits the student goes a long way towards the graduation goal. Many students, at this stage, do not know what they want to do with the rest of their life, and many pick a major based on others career choices for them, not their own. This only results in having to switch colleges or changing majors and delaying the graduation goal, costing all involved money and time.
While there are no guarantees that you will save money, a focused, informed selection process will go a very long way towards a successful education. Hiring an Independent Educational Consultant may seem like a large cost, but in the long run a successful college venture and peace-of-mind are worth it.
