College selection is an exciting and overwhelming time for both students and their parents. Navigating the college process and the many choices can seem daunting. The Collegiate Advisory Group can help students navigate the process of planning, exploring, applying to, and selecting the 'best fit' undergraduate and graduate college.

Choosing the best fit school including development of the college list, managing the college admission process, essay review, interview preparation, and understanding the financial aid process.
Given today's hectic lifestyle, it is difficult to be an expert in everything. With the cost of out-of-state public schools averaging almost $40,000/year and the cost of some private schools exceeding $70,000/year, parents and students are making a significant financial investment in college. In fact, paying for college is one of the largest investments an individual will make next to the purchase of a home. Using the services of independent education consultants such as the Collegiate Advisory Group, who are experts in navigating the college admissions and financial aid processes, can help parents and students ensure that they are making the most informed and cost effective college decision.
