The New Age of College Planning: How coaches are changing the College Planning Process, and why they can work for you
Hamden, CT (PRWEB) May 3, 2008
Planning For College has prepared an exclusive report, "The New Age of College Planning: How coaches are changing the College Planning Process, and why they can work for you". By working with a comprehensive, knowledgeable coaching service, you can get the information you need to make sound decisions - not only about how to choose the right school, but how to pay for it effectively and make the choices necessary for a high-quality college experience. With the importance of a college education to today's students, finding the right coach to guide you through the process may be the wisest investment you can make for college success.
"Today, there are more students than ever competing for entry into top colleges, but there are fewer resources available to families to assist with the college planning process," explains John T. Weir, President and CEO of Planning For College. "College coaches can help make sense of the enormous amount of information that students and parents receive, and can help ensure that the college selection process is a successful one." Planning For College's report is the result of information pulled from the latest college trend reports as well as interviews with coaches, financial aid officers and guidance counselors nationwide.
According to Weir, Planning for College was founded with the vision that coaching should provide a more comprehensive approach to the college selection process. "Many college coaches only solve a portion of families' concerns, because getting into college is only one part of the process," he says. "Education costs today are skyrocketing, so financing is also a key aspect of college planning. In addition, students who choose the right college - which isn't always the most expensive or most exclusive - are often happier and more effective in school, which can help ensure that they complete their college education in a timely manner. This can save families tens of thousands of dollars, and prepare the student for a successful launch into their ideal career."
